The official depletion of IPv4 addresses in February has made it essential for companies to become IPv6 compatible. Beginning in late 2010, Host Virtual has observed a large-scale adoption of its dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 hosting services. The cloud hosting provider has been offering IPv6 services for three years, and has made it easy for its customers to convert to the next generation Internet Protocol.

Cloud hosting provider Host Virtual, Inc. has seen a 473% increase in its customers’ use of dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 hosting services since late last year. The company is more than ready for the global deployment of IPv6; it’s been providing native IPv6 services since 2008, and operates seven IPv4 and IPv6 clouds worldwide, including locations in Europe and South Asia.

It is crucial for companies that provide Internet services to adopt IPv6, so that their products and online content will remain accessible. This new Internet Protocol will eventually replace IPv4 and can offer many more IP addresses, particularly for wireless and handheld devices. It will effectively help the Internet grow and develop for years to come. Fortunately, Host Virtual offers an easy and cost-effective way for companies to keep up with the rest of the online community.

"Many of our customers are using us to quickly and easily deploy an IPv6 version of their web presence, test their IPv6 software and services for compatibility, or expand their reach throughout the world," said Sandy Bhargavi, Host Virtual’s Vice President of Operations. "Our customers continue to be amazed that for less then the cost of a few cups of coffee per month, they can have root access to an IPv6 cloud server in minutes using our self-service IPv6 hosting service and cloud platform."

Host Virtual’s customers can instantly provision a Linux or FreeBSD cloud server in any of its seven cloud locations. Additionally, its clouds support more than 65 Linux and FreeBSD operating system images and appliances, making it easy for companies to migrate into the cloud. The company keeps a full list of their most updated and recently released distros on its site.

Host Virtual’s payment plans are hassle-free, and don’t include complicated per minute or per resource structures. The company enables its customers to deploy to any of its cloud locations with unlimited usage for a flat monthly fee starting at under $10 per month.
