Lightsail adds IPv6

Lightsail, a cheap hosting solution from Amazon, has started offering IPv6 in all its DCs. Not sure if all ECs too have started getting IPv6 as well.
Now, only if Amazon could also stop playing big brother :'(

  • Fast forward to when they give the option of not having IPv4.

    Wow, finally. I expected Colocrossing to have IPv6 before this happens.

  • the only limitation is they only provided single IPv6 (/128) per VM.

    Why do you need more? Do you normally use /8 or /4 of IPv4 addresses?

    Why do bigger subnets than /32 do exist?
    Why does Hetzner offer additional IP's?
    Because people need more.

    Additional, there are definitions, that each client should get a /64 allocated.

    No we don't, but ipv6 never should be compared to ipv4, we have enough addresses for giving everyone on earth, and every person on earth would receive 47,261,439,850,130,342,147,690,917,698 ipv6 addresses.
    That's a huge number ain't it?

    I use one IPv6 address for Cloudflare proxied websites, and another for non-proxied websites.
    This avoids a "this record exposes the IP" warning.

    Also, I can select vanity address within the range.
    For example, https://yoursunny.com resolves to xx::73:756e:6e79 that is the ASCII code of "sunny".

    One shouldn't compare IPv4 and IPv6 that way. That's not how IPv6 was designed. A /64 would be the most appropriate assignment for any rented server and can be seen as the equivalent of a single IPv4 address.

    For those interested, the RIPE NCC offers a free online course that teaches the basics of IPv6.

    I know that more IPv6 addresses available compare to IPv4. The usage for fun and have addresses like:
    xx::73:abcd:abcd
    or
    xx::73:welc:ome1
    is pointless, personally haven't seen any customers who will use every single IPv6 address from /64, /48 or /112 subnets.

    This is a pointless reason why and this is a reason why the shortage of IPv4 addresses, some companies like Ford, Prudential, US Postal Service hold /8.
