ipv6 might be expensive, so they might have to wait until they get more users, to be able to add the ipv6 support.

IPv6 is possible but not yet supported from all DNS and domain providers. So for security reasons you should use IPv4 until IPv6 is standardized.

hey, ipv6 was standardized in 2017
https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc8200
and from my understanding if DNS/domain provider doesnt support it will just use the ipv4/A record instead of the ipv6/AAAA
and most hosts have support for ipv6 (some even provide cheaper hosting w/out ipv4 adress) and most big websites inclueing Google, Facebook, Wikipedia, LinkedIn and cloudflare have ipv6 support
I feel like hubuhost should also roll out ipv6 support too, thanks.

We're working on it at testing branch. If it's still working stable we publish it to Dashboard.
