Video rewind: Is your business still on IPv4?

Sometime back in 2010 we started running articles warning businesses that IPv4 addresses were running out.

Various industry experts warned that companies should demand that Internet Service Protocol services and domain name registrars adopt the new protocol, IPv6.

What has your business done since then? Are you still on IPv4? What challenges did you encounter in migrating to IPv6?

In this Video Rewind episode, Paul Vixie, president of Internet Systems Consortium, warns that the IPv4 addresses will only last until 2011.
John Demco, co-founder of Webnames.ca, a Web hosting firm based in Vancouver, B.C., tries to ease our fears by saying businesses will still have Internet connection even if they continue using IPv4 while the rest of the world has moved on.
