I put Google DNS into all my clients computers...(home users only)

I guess IPV6 is starting to be phased in...should I put the Google DNS IP's
into IPV6 also...???

And how do I do that...I assume the number structure of IP4  8.8.8.8   8.8.4.4
will be completely different in IPV6...

OR...do I not worry about it...???

Also...I have a few customers with the Family Open DNS....should those be in IPV6 also...
And again...what would that structure look like...

Thanks...

Google Public DNS Servers:

IPv4:
8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

IPv6:
2001:4860:4860::8888
2001:4860:4860::8844

With regards to whether you should use IPv4 or IPv6 at home (since all clients are home users, I don't know if there is any real benefit of using IPv6 right now. For simplicity's sake, I would stick with IPv4. With that being said, there is no reason why you can't use both IPv4 and IPv6 DNS servers.

Note:
There are some ISPs that are only giving new customers (only in certain markets) IPv6 IP addresses for their routers. But since all the home computers will be behind the router, they should work just fine with IPv4 addresses assigned to them.
