Acquire an IPv6 range.
To acquire an IPv6 address range, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Most ISPs assign IPv6 addresses in large blocks or ranges.
We recommend that you request IPv6 addresses for the following purposes:
- We recommend that you request an IPv6 address range with a
/64 network portion, the most common network portion for the shared hosting industry. However, network portions may be as low as
/48, or as high as
/128, which represents a single IPv6 address.
- When you acquire IPv6 addresses, make certain to update your Reverse DNS entries. Some ISPs update these entries for you, while others require you to maintain them.
