With the World IPv6 Launch coming up on June 6th, 2012, we’ve been working hard to make IPv6 available to all Linode customers so they can participate. We’re happy to announce that IPv6 is now available in all six of our locations across the world!
If you’d like to enable IPv6 for your existing Linode, just navigate to the Remote Access tab of the Linode Manager and click the “Enable IPv6″ link. Once you reboot, your Linode will have a native IPv6 address ready to use. New Linodes and Linodes migrating between locations will automatically be IPv6-enabled.
Alternatively, NodeBalancers can be used as an IPv6 endpoint without you needing to actually enable IPv6 on your backend Linodes.
More information can be found on our IPv6 FAQ page.
