Only 10 Percent of Web Addresses (IPv4) Remain

By January 25, 2010 No Comments

TechSpot reports that only 10% of the IPv4 addresses remain. IPv4 is the numerical nomenclature used to identify all of those great websites you grew up with like: pets.com, yahoo.com, geocities.com, etc. New kid on the block IPv6 will give us – potentially – trillions of addresses to Facebook about into the future, but the days of IPv4 being our go-to Internet communications protocol are now numbered.

“The replacement addressing system (IPv6) uses a 128-bit address space and can handle trillions of connected devices, whereas — surprising as it may seem — IPv4’s roughly 4 billion addresses are starting to dry out. “

Well crap. I guess it’s time to reserve NakedWheelbarrow.net
