May 3, 2011 by · Comments Off on OpenDNS Announces IPv6 DNS Sandbox 

Webmaster ToolboxSan Francisco, CA — OpenDNS, the world’s largest and fastest-growing provider of Internet navigation and security services that make networks safer, faster, smarter and more reliable, today announced it is offering IPv6 support in production for its 20+ million users, as well as any network administrator tasked with migrating their network to the new protocol.
