We are excited to announce that our newest Atlantic.Net’s Public Cloud location, USA-EAST-3 (Ashburn, VA), now supports IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6). Additional locations will gain support for IPv6 in the coming months. 16 IPv6 addresses are offered at no charge with each new or existing Cloud Server.
What is IPv6?
IPv6 is the most recent version of Internet Protocol (IP), an identification and location system for computers on networks that make up the Internet. It was developed to help sustain the growth of the internet and connected devices by providing far greater address space than IPv4.
How Do I Start Using IPv6?
When creating a new Cloud Server, check the “Enable IPv6” box. Upon creation, your new Cloud Server will have 16 IPv6 addresses allocated for use and will automatically configure its first IPv6 address.
To use IPv6 on an existing Cloud Server, visit the “Details” page and click “Enable IPv6.” This will allocate 16 IPv6 addresses to that Cloud Server. You will need to manually configure your Cloud Server’s network settings to begin using them.

What you should know before enabling IPv6
As our members roll out IPv6 on our Cloud Platform, we thought it would be a good idea to share some of our findings that will help make jumping into the IPv6 universe easier for you. Hopefully, this saves you some time and effort in your IPv6 deployment. Click here to read more.
