Upon request we provide you with a /64 IPv6 subnet for all our Root Server and Root VServer products. You will receive one subnet per server and be able to choose the preferred addresses out of this subnet.
The IPv6 gateway has the address of fe80::1 on each subnet. This address out of the link-local subnet allows for a set up where no address out of your subnet needs to be assigned to the network infrastructure.
Configuration example for Ubuntu/Debian
