This Blog is IPv6 Enabled

Major Internet service providers (ISPs), home networking equipment manufacturers, and web companies around the world are coming together to permanently enable IPv6 for their products and services by 6 June 2012.

Already Facebook & Most of the Google services are available over IPv6( in dual stack mode with IPv4)

Though IPv6 enabled Internet is a long way to go, some should take the initiative. I am also taking part in this launch by enabling this site with IPv6.  This blog is already hosted using IPv6 capable hosting provider Linode. So it’s just a matter of editing the siteinfo in Apache config:


<VirtualHost 173.255.213.212:80>
ServerAdmin krish@krishnamoorthy.in
ServerName krishnamoorthy.in
ServerAlias www.krishnamoorthy.in
DocumentRoot /srv/www/krishnamoorthy.in/public_html/
ErrorLog /srv/www/krishnamoorthy.in/logs/error.log
CustomLog /srv/www/krishnamoorthy.in/logs/access.log combined
</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost [2600:3c01::f03c:91ff:fe93:350b]:80>
ServerAdmin krish@krishnamoorthy.in
ServerName krishnamoorthy.in
ServerAlias www.krishnamoorthy.in
DocumentRoot /srv/www/krishnamoorthy.in/public_html/
ErrorLog /srv/www/krishnamoorthy.in/logs/error.log
CustomLog /srv/www/krishnamoorthy.in/logs/access.log combined
</VirtualHost>

Also, added AAAA record in DNS manager to point this domain to the IPv6 address of the host (2600:3c01::f03c:91ff:fe93:350b)

So, even an IPv6 only client should be able to access this blog ( of course some the embedded external content still hosted on IPv4 only may not load) For most part this is will be accessible.
