another hosting provider dyndns used to have a hosting service which had
IPv6 support. And yes they were also providing a single ipv6 address....
(Now their hosting service is no more offered. don't think it is related
to ipv6 thought)

>> If you are a provider of IPv4 hosting, and can, Provide IPv6 alongside at the same time. On my personal side, I've made all my FreeBSD jails have both an IPv4 and IPv6 address. This does not mean you need to bind() to both, but it does make it possible to do an outbound connect(), and bind() when ready.
