We like to give good news! If you are already our client or want to become, starting today, all of our web hosting packages, including WordPress and Magento hosting, have included an additional dedicated IPv6 address at no additional cost.

IPv6 is the latest version of the Internet Protocol that identifies devices on the Internet to locate them. Every device that uses the Internet is identified by its own IP address so Internet communication works. This is exactly the street addresses and postal codes you need to know to send a letter.

The earlier version, IPv4, uses a 32-bit addressing scheme to support 4.3 billion devices, considered to be sufficient. However, with the expansion of the Internet, personal computers, smart phones, and Internet-connected devices, it shows that the world needs more addresses.
