Arch Red Blog is now IPv6 enabled

Yesterday we found out a way to enable IPv6 for our Google hosted services such as our English and Finnish blogs.

It seems that while Google only enables IPv6 on its on services by request of the IPv6 service provider or IPv6 block owner, it is possible to enable IPv6 on those Google hosted services which are offered under your own domain name.

Since Arch Red blogs are under our own domain name service (archred.com and archred.fi), we can allow them to be accessed also with IPv6 with a simple change in DNS by changing CNAME for them to point to ghs46.google.com instead of IPv4-only ghs.google.com.

Heikki changed our DNS already yesterday and you should be now able to read even this blog entry over IPv6.
