Webair Integrates IPv6 Into Managed Hosting Platform

June 8, 2011 - NEW YORK, NY

Webair hosting is enhancing their top tier Cloud Computing services by announcing the successful integration of IPv6 support throughout their global network. The company has already allocated many IPv6 addresses for clients utilizing the newest Internet protocol and is participating in World IPv6 Day on June 8, 2011, making sure their customers are ready for the future of Internet Protocol Addresses.

Webair embraces this proactive approach by becoming one of the first hosting companies to integrate IPv6 support into their managed hosting platform, control panels, and global network. To celebrate this achievement, Webair takes part in World IPv6 day along with several other leading technology companies that have expressed a vested interest in the continued development of online protocols.

Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Akamai and Webair will be among some of the major organizations that will offer content over the new IPv6 network for a 24-hour "test flight." The goal of this day is to motivate organizations across the industry -- internet service providers, hardware makers, operating system vendors and web companies -- to prepare services or support for IPv6, ensuring a successful transition from the older IPv4 addresses.

"Webair has always been an early adopter of the most modern technological advancements available because that is a part of how our clients gain a competitive advantage," said Michael C. Orza, President of Webair. "Our integration of IPv6 allows customers increased addressing capacity, more flexible security, ability to expand infrastructure and accelerate business. We are proud to be among those who took this challenge in delivering support for customers seeking to be in full compliance with the new protocol architecture."

IPv6 is the newest Internet Protocol available and has become a priority of IT professionals who understand the rapid pace of internet evolution. When IPv4 was first announced, supporting as many as 4.5 Billion usable IP addresses, many believed that would be enough to last. Just a short while later, all of the available IPv4 addresses are being put to use, necessitating the deployment of a new IPv6 protocol that brings 340 undecillion addresses into the pool of available IPs.

Webmasters interested in protecting their digital properties are encouraged to visit for information regarding the transition to IPv6. Next generation IP addresses are available now and Webair will assist you with implementing this technology.
