It’s been a few years since I started a little project to operate a service to return your IPv4 and IPv6 address. Although there are a bunch of other sites that offer this service as well, I’ve been amazed by the gradually increasing traffic to icanhazip.com.
Here’s a sample of the latest statistics:
- Hits per day: 1.8 million (about 21 hits/second)
- Unique IP addresses per day: 25,555
- Hits per day from IPv6 addresses: 1,069 (a little sad)
- Bandwidth used per day: ~ 400MB
This should allow the site to reply more quickly and reliably. If you have suggestions for other improvements, let me know!
