AdGuard DNS now supports IPv6

Good news for those who use AdGuard DNS and like to always be a step ahead — we have added support for IPv6 addresses. Read the article to find out what is it and why is it important.

What is IPv6?

IPv6 stands for "Internet protocol version 6" which, compared to the older (and most common) IPv4 supports a much larger number of addresses. The problem with IPv4 is that there are simply not enough addresses anymore — it was introduced back in 1981 and was not designed with so many end users in mind.

IPv6 is expected to solve this problem, and more and more websites and providers switch to the new protocol.

AdGuard DNS IPv6 addresses

First, make sure you have a working IPv6 address. To do so, visit this page, for example. Then follow the instructions to set up AdGuard DNS, but instead of IPv4 addresses use these IPv6 ones:



for "Default" mode or



for "Family Protection" mode.

And that's it! You are now using IPv6 protocol to resolve DNS addresses.
