    IPv6 Pros / Cons? Mail?

    What are the pros and cons right now for using IPv6 in:

    virtual server environment
    shared hosting (cpanel) environment
    email server (Linux & Windows)

    Is it 100% fully email capable yet too?

    Pro's: Future proof...

    Con's: The overwhelming majority of residential customers will not be able to reach you over IPv6.

    While everyone is touting how awesome it is to have IPv6, people are overlooking the tiny little fact that probably 95+% of home users do not have any access to IPv6 and they will not for years. We will run out of IPv4 in the literal sense and it will still be years before IPv6 makes a dent in residential customer usage. Also, cPanel does not support IPv6 but I wouldn't worry about it... SINCE MOST CANNOT EVEN USE IT?!

    You'll see the same group of whiners on WHT go on about how cPanel doesn't support IPv6 but as mentioned, the overwhelming majority of people cannot and will not be able to even use it for years so who cares right now? As long as they have it in a few years time, when IPv6 is "remotely common" then I'll care. Sigh..
