WordPress.com – still no IPv6

Three years ago I wondered when wordpress.com would begin to support IPv6. The irony of hosting a blog that talks a lot about IPv6 on an IPv4-only platform is not lost on me 😦

Here we are in 2016 with Google, Akamai and pretty much all content providers are reporting more IPv6 traffic, and WordPress.com is still stuck in 1983.

This is not an OS issue, a load balancer issue, a PHP language issue, or even a WordPress software issue. I’ve seen WP software running full dual-stack, no problems. Five years ago. I’ve done it myself, I just don’t want to run WP myself anymore.

For whatever reason, WordPress.com has not decided to commit to the future. yet.
