With IPv4 I don't have to buy a domain name to make my website available to everyone. I can just give people my IP address, they type it into their browser and there it is.

Is that supposed to work at all with IPv6? When I try going to my IPv6 address all browsers just make a google search with no results.

    You don't have to buy a domain for every server. You can buy one domain and use it for millions of servers.

Yeah that is supported. Just use http://[IPv6-Address]. The [] must be included.
