IPv6 Adoption Grows By 1900% - Primarily Due to Domain Name Registrar Support

The percentage of zones under .com, .net and .org that support IPv6 has increased by 1,900% over the past 12 months according to a new census conducted by the Measurement Factory, sponsored by Infoblox. According to the census, this dramatic increase can be primarily attributed to the introduction of support of IPv6 by a single domain name registrar, Go Daddy.

Census data reveals IPv6 support by domain name registrars can increase adoption. Findings include:

• A 1,900% increase — from 1.27% in the 2010 sample to 25.4% in the 2011 sample — in the zones that support IPv6.

• IPv6 adoption by popular registrar Go Daddy represents a significant portion of the growth.

• Factoring out Go Daddy's contribution, the percentage of zones that support IPv6 increased organically more than two-fold over the previous year to over 3%.

• The top three countries in IPv6 adoption are France, the U.S. and the Czech Republic.

• Slightly more than 2% of the zones surveyed were served by mail servers that support IPv6.

• Less than 1% of the zones had IPv6-enabled web servers.
