Hi Mossback,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. Currently, none of our servers have been assigned IPv6 addresses so you cannot create the record. IPv6 is used and created to handle DNS when IPv4 addresses run out. You won't have a need to run them concurrently to the same server. I hope this clarifies the question.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.

It is my understanding the the IPV6 users will not be able to see the IPV4 address space. So as the IPv6 consumers come online, the will not be able to see your servers. Right now Comcast is handing out IPv6 addresses to their customers in LA. I know this because they can no longer see my server running here at in-motion and when I ask the to enter "what's my IP" in the google search bar, a IPv6 address is returned. They can't see us!

That is correct at this time.

I hope you guys are geeky enough to know what comic con is.
Image the confusion when artists and movie developers have to explain to their fans their websites are invisible to people that live in the 21 century. I am bummed out by your responses here. I will have to move our site. Not a fun project...

Actually, you could use a CDN like CloudFlare. They have a wonderful array of tools, including an IPv6 gateway setting enables IPv6 on all subdomains that are on CloudFlare. It's free, unless you're a gigantic power-house of a blog like CNET who should have their own server... But they can fix this problem, and many other issues. Check it out!
