Because the 2000's are over.
IPv6 is the new version of the Internet Protocol, designed to replace the current format, known as IPv4.
To those who are unfamiliar with Internet technologies, IPv4 addresses, like phone numbers are assigned hierarchically, and thus, have inherent inefficiency. The world’s Internet population has been growing and the number of Internet-connected devices continues to rise, with no end in sight.
Today, the Internet is running out of IPv4 addresses and IPv6 provide a endless amount of IP addresses.
To encourage IPv6 adoption, each Cloud Server starts off with one IPv6 address (/128).
IPv6 address allocation can be disabled, if you don't need it.
