DHC now on IPv6

I couldn't find an appropriate area for this, so I stuck it here. It appears Digital Home Canada is now on IPv6.

$ host www.digitalhome.ca
www.digitalhome.ca is an alias for www.digitalhome.ca.cdn.cloudflare.net.
www.digitalhome.ca.cdn.cloudflare.net has address 104.18.27.143
www.digitalhome.ca.cdn.cloudflare.net has address 104.18.26.143
www.digitalhome.ca.cdn.cloudflare.net has IPv6 address 2606:4700::6812:1b8f
www.digitalhome.ca.cdn.cloudflare.net has IPv6 address 2606:4700::6812:1a8f

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...

I try to get others to move to IPv6, as IPv4 hasn't been adequate for years.

DHC now on IPv6

So do I but when I click on the main Digitalhome.ca I see the IPV6 address as my PC, BEING windows ‘prefers’ V6 and will always try V6 first.
FWIW my network uses the Google V6 and V4 DNS.

Those weren't meant to be links to click on. They're just the results of the host command, which got turned into URLs when I pasted them in my post. The only one that should work is www.digitalhome.ca. One reason that the other might fail is the web site will check to see what URL was used and reject any other than digitalhome.ca, even though it's just an alias for the cloudfare.net addresses.

I believe all modern OSs perfer IPv6. Also it doesn't make any difference whether the DNS server is IPv4 or IPv6, as either way it should return the same A and AAAA records.
