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.
