When the internet was created the standard was a four block internet address. Most people know these addresses as 192.168.x.x which is a problem when everyone on the internet has a ip now days. Then it was decided to up the amount of addresses which is the invent of IPv6 "IPv6 uses a 128-bit address, whereas IPv4 uses only 32 bits. The new address space supports 2128 (about 3.4×1038) addresses." The counter below is a counter of how many IPv4 addresses are still available and when we will be out of space. The adoption of IPv6 has to come soon or there will be lots of issues on the internet.
