    Try to remember a handful of them

      In the world of computers, why would remembering numbers be the stop for new technologies?

      Do you remember anyone’s public key? Certificate?

      I don’t even remember domain (most) names, just Google them or save them as bookmarks or something.

      The reason IPv4 still exists is because ISPs benefit from its scarcity. Big ISPs already paid a lot of money to own IPv4 addresses, if they switched to IPv6 that investnywould be worthless.

      Try selling static IPv6 addresses as they do now with IPv4. People would laugh at them and just get a free IPv6 address from an ISP that wants to get new users and doesn’t charge for it.

      The longer ISPs delay the adoption of IPv6, the longer they can milk IPv4 scarcity.

          IPv6 addresses are practically endless, therefore their value is practically 0. ISPs justify charging extra for static IPv4 because IPv4 addresses do have a value.

          If ISPs charge for static IPv6, then one of them could just give that service for free (while keeping the rest of the prices the same as their competitors). That would get them more customers while costing them nothing.

          EDIT: I can’t give you an example of an ISP that offers free static IPv6 because there are no ISPs in my country that offer IPv6.

            For that matter, you should be getting an entire /60 at a minimum. Probably more like /56.

      damn if only we had a service that like, obfuscated and abstracted these hard to remember IPs that aren’t very user friendly, and turned them into something more usable. That would be cool i think. Someone should make that.
