@pradeep08_81, I have googled ipv6 and saw those links already as well as many others.   My question is what is your own experience?

I have found that sometimes fault reported are not dealt with the same urgency they would receive for IPv4.  However on the whole, no problems.  I have been hosting websites on IPv6 for quite a while now.
http://box4.bevhost.com/
http://box6.bevhost.com/
Are both the same web site.

Maybe you don't have an IPv6 address.

One of my web host's is suggesting if I start using IPv6 that it will not work with some ISP's and I guess this is what they are talking about.  I now have to pay for IPv4 IP's and no charge for IPv6.  For getting secure cert's I need the single IP.  Although I may be upgrading in the next couple of months and switch from windows 2008 to 2012.  I believe that should allow me to have multiple certificates on one IP instead of one for one.

You can use the same Certificate on both IPv4 and IPv6.

The best is to have both an IPv4 address and an IPv6 address.

This way clients who have :-
IPv4 Only
IPv6 Only
Dual Stack (both)
can connect to your server.

Right, but the problem is I can't get anymore IPv4's without paying extra monthly charges.  I think I just need to wait to upgrade to windows 2012.  

Thanks!
