Can I use Spaces with a Droplet with IPv6 enabled?

Hi everyone,

TL;DR: Will I have trouble connecting spaces with my droplet if I enable IPv6?

I am not a developer and have no idea about cloud computing, but I am trying to set up my own webserver to learn.

When creating a Droplet, I am presented with the option of enabling IPv6, which from what I read, seems the reasonable thing to do. However, I see that spaces is not compatible with this protocol.

My plan is to set a droplet for the static content of my site and a spaces for storing images and videos, to improve the performance of the site. Does that make sense?

No.
IPv6 needs to be enabled for both sides of the connection in order for the connection to use IPv6..

Eg, you and your server need to have a v6 address, or in this case, both servers do.
else they will both use ipv4.
