I realized soon after signing up that the HA Proxy IPv4 NAT'ing that LES uses would require a ticket for each domain/subdomain I wanted to add, which means bugging Anthony to setup each new record. So I went looking for a better way to do things.

Each LowEndSpirit box gets 5 IPv6 addresses but we want an IPv4 for serving our websites, as most people don't have IPv6 at home yet.

I found out that Cloudflare actually runs a free IPv6 to IPv4 (and vice-versa) proxy with their service. Cloudflare's CDN normally works on a reverse proxy (you publicly see a Cloudflare IP for your site, while it proxies your actual IP to load your site).

\_\_ 1.) Signup for a free account at Cloudflare.com and add your domain (you can add as many as you want)
\_\_ 2.) Update your domain's name servers at your registrar to the ones Cloudflare supplies (<name>.ns.cloudflare.com)
\_\_ 3.) Edit your Cloudflare DNS records, create & point your domain/subdomain's quad-A (AAAA) record to one of your LES IPv6 Addresses (see your welcome email with your VPS info)

\_\_ 4.) Make sure you have “Cloudflare On” for the domain/subdomain record you just setup (make sure the little cloud icon is orange next to the record)

\_\_ 5.) Head into your “Cloudflare Settings” for your domain - select the gear icon next to your domain in the main domain list

\_\_ 6.) Scroll down and under 'Automatic IPv6' change the default mode 'Safe' to 'Full'

\_\_ 7.) Modify your web server to listen on the IPv6 address you used above, on port 80 of course
\_\_ 8.) Enjoy some IPv4 goodness without nagging Anthony!

Bonus: Cloudflare is a CDN which will offload some of your static files (I believe just JS & CSS if I'm not mistaken) and point your website visitors to their closest PoP, making your site load a lot quicker.

I'm sure many of you already knew this or have setup a different IPv6→IPv4 reverse proxy, but hopefully this helps someone out and can make sure a few less tickets get created.

You'll still need to know the IPv4 address of your box to SSH in, as Cloudflare won't pass those requests on, but there are a bunch of other threads on how to find that. (Easiest method being: start a console session in your VPS panel, click the 'connection details' link and it'll give you the public IP)
