Welcome to the gosix.net #IPv6 compatibility database.
Here we blame those who fail at implementing IPv6 but we also document products with good IPv6 support.
gosix.net IPv6 compatibility database is a database that registers the IPv6 compatibility status for:
This is about devices that have a network port or WiFi and don't run a classic computer OS but rather a firmware.
The category of software is divided into client and server software. Both need IPv6 capabilities in order to support the current internet protocol.
This is a lot like the devices category but those are generally smaller devices that serve in Home Automation or similar applications.
The landscape of Operating Systems is broader than you might think. There is not only Windows, macOS and Linux. This also covers the mobile devices OS market and even the more exotic OSes. Currently we are developing a robust test that will deliver you the best IPv6 compatibility data in the world.
This is basically software, too but since it's a huge portion and also because there are games for consoles they get their own category. Video games today very often offer a multiplayer mode that is hosted on the developers servers. Those servers are often IPv4 only and this sometimes means that you won't be able to play them, because of lacking IPv6 support.
You will be surprised how many of the biggest website do not speak IPv6. Here you can find an enormous list of websites that are or are not IPv6 compatible. The list is updated every 24h and you can influence on what websites shall be checked. Also we plan to implement a subscription service so you will be the first one to know, when github.com finally activates IPv6.
Container images are preconfigured applications. Depending on what the maintainer does, the container image may or may not support IPv6. gosix.net is the only resource that publishes information if your docker / podman container is IPv6 ready.
Internet Service Providers sometimes fail big time on providing the clients with proper IPv6 connectivity. Yet ISP are one of the most important players in the IPv6 game. gosix.net's drive is to have the biggest and most recent list of providers that qualify for the next generation internet connectivity.
Datacenters usually have proper IPv6 connectivity for their customers but there are also black sheep. At gosix.net you will find a comprehensive list of datacenters that will deliver adequate IPv6 addresses for your servers, VMs and container hosts.
VPN Providers are very famous these days. People use them to gain some more privacy and sometimes to hide activity from their providers. Good VPN providers offer IPv6 support so your traffic will get through the tunnel not only for IPv4 but also for IPv6 traffic.
Authoritative nameservers are the backbone of the internet. If DNS fails, the internet fails. Nameservers need to be reachable via IPv6 as well. Sadly that's not the case for all of them. gosix.net will shed light in the dark and give a nice list of DNS servers that are or are not IPv6 ready.
We plan to have a list of which authorities are IPv6 ready. While the Czech Republic announed to end IPv4 support in 2032, others have not even heard yet of IPv6.
Email is the backbone of our digital communications system. To our surprise many mailservers don't speak IPv6. We plan to deliver you the most comprehensive list of mailservers that do and do NOT speak IPv6. Stay tuned.
