Did CWP support IPV6?
« on: October 25, 2019, 12:12:17 PM »
I have a question did CWP support IPV6? I don't find any way to enable IPV6 in my websites.

At this point IPV6 should be a default options since most hosting companies are starting limiting the access to multiple IPV4.

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be that case.
It is worth ask: how is it possible that in 2020 there is still no IPv6 support ?
IPv6 is not a "minor, nice to have thing" to be left to "when there is some time".
Often people complain that there are many contents that don't have IPv6 support but then products that should have it ready don't as well.

hi, you can manually configure or create vhosts templates for websites with ipv6 configs.

I think you didn't get the critically of this missing. We are not talking about a nice custom thing that would be nice to have like a kind of specially back mode for example.
IPv6 is not something "nice to have when possible" or "optional", but mandatory. A product that lacks it is legacy as it is IPv4.
In 2020 not having it ready and working by default is something that easily puts any product out.

There is the IPv4 exhaustion problem since 2011 which has been increasing and companies are required to use IPv6 everywhere, but CWP in 2020 still didn't take as something important to get everything ready to treat IPv6 as it does with IPv4.
If it hasn't been done yet it is something that should be taken as the highest priority over anything else.

Put in context, a large proportion of the UK has no IPv6 connectivity due to BT wholesale/ISPs not implementing it yet.
I should imagine there are quite a few other countries that are the same.

It doesn't really matter what an specific broadband provider is lacking really.
The reality is that in several countries IPv6 deployment is between 30 to 60% and that IPv4 is already considered legacy.

An old product that doesn't receive updates anymore is understandable not having it but a product that is developed and in already 2020 cannot miss it. The issue about IPv4 exhaustion comes from back in 2011 and a most of the content providers have it 100% ready, including the major ones like Google, Facebook, Netflix, Akamai, Cloudflare - all 100%

We would love for CWP to have general IPv6 support.

So far, what we have done is a module that assigns IPv6 to CWP accounts, but we need CWP's help to improve it. We are currently using it privately on our servers and are improving bugs.
