Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6)
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) – was is it? Why is it so important now? Well, first off, as we all know the internet to simply be websites, with www. and social media pages to upload pictures, send a message in 140 characters or less, however, there is a lot more to the internet then tagging your best friend in the picture you just uploaded. By that we mean IP addresses (Internet Protocol) the way that servers and the world wide web communicate and provide you with the beautiful images you see on your Mac!
As the internet has grown over the last 15 years, there are simply no more IP addresses, and the original setup IPv4, is running out of IP addresses. So while engineers are working to provide servers all over the world with IP addresses, we should not be too concerned, however, this is a process that will take a while and is in the works. Great, now if we can figure out how to relay this message in less than 140 characters, we will be geniuses!
