Noticed on twitter there’s a lot of buzz about the fact we’ll run out of IP addresses in few days, what the heck does that mean? Internet fail or what?

No, it means all internet/hosting providers need to switch from IPv4 to IPv6 protocoll. Basically it’s a software update for the providers, so they’ll be able to handle the new IP standard.

IPv6 allows much much more number range for IP addresses.

So i guess you won’t see me for few decades while the internet providers in Serbia switch to IPv6.

:) Well I guess for the existing customers they can give IP address but they can’t for the new ones. So worry not, you can continue referring new members for ThemeForest. :)

I’m an author too :) “jvanoel” account (there are 2 of us in the team).

And dude, this is freaking Serbia, whoever gives the most money will get an IP address. I’m moving out from Serbia :)

IPv4 uses 32-bit addresses, which means that there are total of 2 ^ (32) total addresses and we simply used all of those address (= 4 294 967 296 :O now that’s a lot of IP addresses)

IPv6 uses 128-bit addresses which means that there are much more combinations, 2 ^ (128) which is aproximately 340 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 addresses :O Now there are IP addresses for whole solar system i think lol xD

So anyway it’s no big deal for us – internet users and we shouldn’t notice any changes :) But all internet providers are going to have big job in switching to IPv6.

340 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 is enough for little village in China.

Anyway, Eunet in Serbia will have IPv6 first ^^

Well all the internet providers go thought “Telekom Srbija” which is an internet provider also, so i don’t think anyone can switch to IPv6 before “Telekom Srbija”. As far as i know :)

We should expect IPv6 when IPv8 comes in United States.
