Question

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?

Will I have trouble connecting spaces with my droplet if I enable IPv6?

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.
