Get6 with ARIN by Your Side

Get6 with ARIN by Your Side

It’s no secret that we’ve been touting IPv6 as your connection to the “Whole Internet” for a while now. In fact, we’ve been shouting from the rooftops for years that it’s time for you to Get6. Along the way, you’ve asked us some great questions like what exactly IPv6 is, how it differs from IPv4, what the advantages are, and even how you can deploy it (that last one is music to our ears!). But now we have a question for you: have you actually taken that final step of joining us on the Whole Internet yet?

If you haven’t, maybe you’re still feeling a little unsure about where to begin. You know you need some more training and understanding – and maybe even a little collaboration with others who have made the journey – but you’re not sure where to find those resources. Look no more! We’re proud to introduce you to one of ARIN’s most powerful tools that you may not be aware of yet: the IPv6 wiki.

ARIN is always looking for ways to assist the community by providing education and outreach on migration to IPv6, and this wiki provides just that. This site includes people just like you recommending best practices, sharing success stories, detailing case studies, and providing general information on using IPv6 in the ARIN region. The goal of the wiki is to take advantage of the incredible amount of collective knowledge in the ARIN community and put it to work for you.

In addition to the resources mentioned above, we’ve also developed a listing of trainers and consultants as well as a listing of providers who offer IPv6 services to aid you in the switch to IPv6. You can find the listing of hosting providers and trainers and consultants on our wiki.

Want to be listed as a hosting provider or trainer? Anyone can add to the wiki! Just send your name, preferred user name, and preferred email address (if different than the one you’re sending from) to webmaster@arin.net. Your account will be created within one business day and an email will be generated and sent to the email you provided asking you to set up your own password for your account. Once you have an account, you can add yourself to either listing. Now you’re ready to help others Get6!

If you’d prefer to spread the IPv6 word another way, we’re always on the lookout for guest bloggers and forward thinkers. Leave us a comment if you’re interested in contributing!
