None of the websites from India with Alexa ranks of less than 1,000 were spotted. Sify.com was the highest ranking website from India that had an Alexa rank of 1,532 on the launch day. The only listing from Bengaluru was that of Bangalore International Airport. The website, www.bengaluruairport.com showed an Alexa ranking of 339,387 on the day.
Among the Internet service provider (ISP) websites, none of better known telcos appeared in the listing. The only ISP to feature in the listing was HNS Internet, a niche service provider from Mumbai.
Overall, the listings from India clocked a share of 1.5% for URLs listed on the launch site on June 6.
That is not bad, however, considering that a pronounced goal of the World IPv6 Launch is that ISPs participating in the launch will "enable IPv6 for enough users so that at least 1% of their residential wireline subscribers who visit participating websites will do so using IPv6." Also, Web companies participating in World IPv6 Launch will enable IPv6 on their main websites permanently.
Obviously, even the Internet Society expects migration to IPv6 to be a somewhat slow phenomenon, especially because the protocol is not backward compatible with IPv4.
The currently deployed protocol IPv4 supports around four billion IP addresses, which are nearly exhausted. With IPv6, the number of addresses is expected to become practically infinite and inexhaustible, as the new protocol would be able to provide more than 340 trillion, trillion, trillion addresses. That would be very much needed as we move ahead in the era of machine-to-machine communication.
