I've been playing around with really low end virtual servers, and
it's amazing how spotty IPv6 support is.
I had a beta/free VPS with euserv: single IPv6 (maybe if you pay you
can get a /64?).
Virmach can't do IPv6, although it's been in process for _years_.
Digitalocean gives you a massive /124, and I think only the first of
16 gets rdns.
I don't see any easy way to get an IPv6 VPS with the Oracle cloud or
AWS EC2 (?!). I think you can get
something at Azure, but seems like it's on a load balancer and you
have to use CLI or API to turn it on. No idea if it's a single IP or
a /64 or better.
OTOH, prgmr.com gives you 1 by default, and they'll happily route a
/64 if you ask. Not sure about rdns...I should bug 'em and see what they say.
When I switched to cox residential cable I was stunned to see the
router acquire a dynamic /56 block. (The 'dynamic' IPv4 address
hasn't changed in months, so I suspect the /56 block is nearly static too.)
BTW, namecheap was able to do A and AAAA glue with a ticket.
