Cepat , cepat kepada sesiapa yang belum lagi mempunyai alamat IP sendiri, sila mendaftar sekarang. IPv4 yang ada, bakinya dijangka habis dalam masa 2 tahun lagi menurut APNIC , badan yang bertanggungjawab mengawal selia alamat internet dan pengagihannya diAsia Pasifik. Berikut adalah petikan dari TMI,
The current supply of internet address are expected to last only another two years and businesses that are not prepared for it could see their websites affected says APNIC, the internet body that is responsible for internet address registration and distribution in the Asia Pacific region.
There are about 4 billion internet protocol (IP) addresses under the current set of internet protocols, known as IPv4 and the rapid growth of the internet means that most of these addresses have been used up. The IPv6 protocol was developed ten years ago as a solution to the limited address space and has 340 trillion trillion trillion IP addresses available.
“If the IPv4 IP address space is the size of a golf ball, IPv6 is the size of the sun,” said Paul Wilson, APNIC general director in an interview at the sidelines of the APRICOT internet conference held here recently.
He added that in two years, there will not be any more IPv4 addresses to be distributed and what will be given out from that point on will be IPv6 addresses. Businesses still using IPv4 will remain connected to the internet but access will be less efficient and optimal than IPv6 and Wilson urged businesses that rely on speed, efficiency and reliability on their web presence to check their preparedness as well as that of their Internet service provider.
