The Internet Ran Out of IP Addresses

THE INTERNET RAN OUT OF IP ADDRESSES ( Now what?) All websites have an IP address. "An IP address is a numerical label assigned to a device or website. IP addresses are usually written and displayed in WIKIPEDIA The Free Encyclopedia human-readable notations, such as 172.16.254.1 (IPV4) Server:~ $ ping google.com PING google.com (215.58.219.46): 56 bytes 64 bytes from 216.58.219.46: icmp_seq=0 ttl=54 time=13.164 ms IPV4 has a finite range. θ.θ.0.0 255.255.255.255 Each IP has a combination of four digits, starting at 0 and going up as high as 255. IPV4, the address protocol that the internet was built on, has 4,294,967,296 possible unique addresses. This means once every combination in this range is exhausted, we have hit the capacity of IPV4. Available IPV4 addresses past 20 years 160 IANA 140 RIR pool + IANA 120 100 80 60 40 20 1996 1998 2000 2002 2004 2006 2008 2010 2012 2014 Date IPV6: The future home of the internet +PV4: 4,294,967,296- IPV6: 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 Over the next 15 years, we'll be slowly moving the internet over to the IPV6 protocol, which will be a combined effort. Once on IPV6, we'll have over 340 undecillion possible IP addresses.

We're running out of IP addresses on the IPv4 platform that the internet was built on, and over time, we're going to have to switch over to IPv6. This infographic illustrates the issue as well as the ...
