Webmaster ToolboxGENEVA, SWITZERLAND and RESTON, VIRGINIA, USA – Hundreds of websites and Internet service providers around the world are joining Facebook, Google (NASDAQ: GOOG), Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO), Akamai (NASDAQ: AKAM), Limelight Networks (NASDAQ: LLNW) as participants in World IPv6 Day for the first global-scale trial of the new Internet Protocol, IPv6, being organized by the Internet Society.

During World IPv6 Day on 8 June 2011, more than 225 participating organizations from every part of the globe will enable IPv6 on their main services for 24 hours.

World IPv6 Day participants are coming together to help motivate organizations across the industry—Internet service providers, hardware manufacturers, operating system vendors and other web companies—to prepare their services for the transition.

“The building interest in and amazing response to World IPv6 Day around the world is extremely encouraging, and highlights the growing momentum behind deploying IPv6,” said Leslie Daigle, Chief Internet Technology Officer for the Internet Society. “We see this test flight as an important step towards ensuring the global Internet can continue to grow and evolve so that it can connect billions of new users and devices.” Read more
