IPv6 is the “next generation” internet protocol designed by the IETF to replace the current IP Version 4 addressing. Verio is leading the way with this integration which includes enhancements to address availability, routing and auto-configuration. Our commitment to remaining at the forefront of hosting technologies is a primary focus for us, and ensures that we continue to provide the best hosting solutions available for our SMB customers.
While many large organizations will be required to be IPv6 compliant by 2012, setting up testing environments today can make for a seamless conversion to this expanded new protocol. Should you want to take advantage of development lead time, Verio is leading the implementation of hosting solutions with IPv6 technology available today.
Support Both IPv4 and IPv6 Addresses and Services Today
IPv6 compatible FreeBSD VPS and FreeBSD Dedicated Server Hosting products are available from our San Jose, California and Sterling Virginia data centers – with an IPv6 address available at no additional charge. These solutions utilize a dual-stack architecture enabling you to support both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and services simultaneously. We will continue to add IPv6 compatible hosting products to the Verio offerings as the full conversion date approaches.
IPv6 is the next generation protocol for the Internet. While IPv4 has been around for over 30 years and has been the core protocol for the Internet, it has some limitations. For example, it is projected that the supply of available IPv4 addresses will max out somewhere in the next 2 to 3 years. IPv6 extends available IP addresses to a near limitless quantity.
Interoperable with the current IPv4, IPv6 is designed to run well on high performance networks (Gigabit Ethernet, OC-12, ATM, etc.) and at the same time still be efficient for low bandwidth networks (such as wireless).
Additionally, IPv6 provides for standard implementation of security and reliability protocols which increase quality of service without diminishing performance.
Verio is the first Tier-one Internet backbone provider built for the future. We see IPv6 as an enabling technology. IPv6 offers improved security and reliability, the ability to offer IPs to a global market, built-in functionality for Mobile IP, Multicast, and more.
The IPv6-enabled VPS and dedicated servers offered by Verio are just one component of NTT Communication's large-scale IPv6 service. NTT's globally tested and proven IPv6-native, tunneling, and dual-stack gateway services are now available on a commercial basis. Customers around the globe are able to connect to the world's only commercial-grade Global Tier One IPv6 Backbone operating in Asia, Europe, North America and Australia.
A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a web services infrastructure that partitions a single physical server into multiple “virtual” servers. Despite sharing server resources, each VPS is fully isolated with its own file system, processes, users, applications, and resource allocations. This enables you to fully customize your server configuration and choose the best applications and services to suit your specific needs.
VPS Solutions include the added value of managed hardware services. Verio's hosting experts handle the day-to- day system administration like OS updates, server software patches and upgrades, security tasks and backups. Learn More About FreeBSD VPS
A Dedicated Server includes all the value of managed hardware services provided with a VPS solution, but instead of a virtual shared environment, you get a completely private, dedicated server. This gives you the added full power and flexibility to control all elements of the applications and server environment while Verio's experts handle the details of the server management.

Set up test environments for IPv6-enabled technology
Utilizing the power and flexibility of Verio's FreeBSD VPS and FreeBSD Dedicated Server Hosting solutions, you can develop your own IPv6 infrastructure, products or services. You can create multiple server configurations to provide test and development environments that are IPv6 compatible – all at a fraction of the cost of setting up your own IPv6 infrastructure.
VPS or Dedicated Server solutions can also be setup as a central server for IPv6-enabled mobile devices, a secure messaging server, an application server for IPv6-enabled web applications, or as a termination point for IPv6-enabled VPNs.
