Verisign on World IPv6 Day

Verisign – The Transition to IPv6Joining the likes of Cisco, Google, Yahoo, and other industry leaders, Verisign will enable global IPv6 connectivity to its corporate website on June 8 — to mark World IPv6 Day — and thereafter, so that anyone with IPv6 Internet capabilities will be able to access the site. IPv4 traffic access to the site will be unchanged.

"Verisign is very pleased to join the many Web companies, Internet Service Providers and enterprises participating in World IPv6 Day to help ensure a successful transition from IPv4 to IPv6," says Danny McPherson, CSO of Verisign. "Working together, we can make 2011 an historic year for ensuring the stability, security and growth of the Internet."

Verisign IPv6 Infrastructure Traffic

Verisign receives approximately 60 billion Domain Name System (DNS) queries daily made up of both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic. This line graph reflects the amount of IPv6 traffic received by the .com and .net TLDs that Verisign manages, the A and J Root Servers and Verisign Managed DNS on a monthly basis in 2011.
