"The Global IPv6 Deployment Progress Report"
« on: July 06, 2010, 12:56:11 PM »

cf. URL:

Are we certain that the statistics are accurate?  I find it hard to believe, for example, that the number of domains with IPv6 glue under the ".com" TLD is so low....
     com  88246599  78183765    994475   1727721       618 
88M domans, but only 618 have IPv6 glue?  That seems really low.

It would also be nice if we could see how specific domains measure up against the list; for example, perhaps a list of the 618 .com's that have glue (as a linked-to additional page).  Second example:  I'd like to know whether my ".name" domain is one of the 7 that you found has glue (it should be), or if my Usenet server is among the 91 that you found have IPv6 addresses, etc....

Now, if you can't list the domains (due to the registry agreement to get the info), then how about a query system where we can ask about specific domains (non-wildcarded)?  Obviously, we already have the name if we're submitting the query.

Well I did a quick comparison  between domain with a-glue/arecords and aaaa-glue/aaaa-records
22.06% of domains woth a-records had a-glue 0.07% of domains with AAAA records have AAAA-glue (data for .com at Mon Sep 13 00:30:03 2010 )  so ipv6 has a bit to go.
