Do they offer IPv6 ?

The global IPv4 pool is now gone and APNIC, RIPE and ARIN pools will
almost certainly be depleted in a few months too.

Some people are deploying IPv6-only networks right now, and without
IPv6 connectivity I'm afraid access to DragonFly resources could become
troublesome in the future.
