Authoriative Name Servers now with IPv6 support!

a.auth-ns.sonic.net and b.auth-ns.sonic.net are now fully IPv6 enabled for answering authoritative DNS requests over IPv6. While IPv6 is still a long way off from widespread deployment we are seeing more and more services becoming available via IPv6.

Sonic.net has provided IPv6 tunnel services to all broadband connected customers since April of 2003. For more information check out http://sonic.net/features/ipv6 or head straight to our membertools to setup your tunnel today.

    I have nothing but good things to say about the IPv6 tunnel service. Now, when can I get native IPv6?

    Today we do not have the ability to support IPv6 in our access edge equipment. When it is possible, we will offer native IPv6.

    Is Sonic.net planning on getting these IPv6 DNS servers on the Google-over-IPv6 whitelist? http://www.google.com/intl/en/ipv6/ (hopefully, yes 🙂

    Hi Steven, we’re moving towards improving our network up to meet those requirements, but we’re not there yet.

    Dane’s interview mentions IPv6 at around 50 and 52 minutes in: http://corp.sonic.net/ceo/2011/02/22/triangulation/

    How is Sonic’s native IPv6 infrastructure coming along? IPv6 traffic on the Internet has more than doubled in the last year, and major ISP’s like Comcast and Swisscom are now showing ~10% of their traffic on IPv6 rather than IPv4. See:

    Sonic, you are leaders in almost everything ISP-related; why do you keep dragging your feet about IPv6?
