How to request an IPv6 prefix

Reviewed on 13 November 2023Published on 03 August 2021
  • You have an account and are logged into the Dedibox console
  • You have created a Dedibox dedicated server

All Scaleway Dedibox dedicated servers support IPv6. You can request a free /48 IPv6 prefix for your account. This prefix can then be divided into multiple /56 or /64 subnets. IPv6 is available for Dedibox servers in Paris, Amsterdam, and Warsaw.

  1. Click Server > Network configuration in the Dedibox console. The network configuration page displays.
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Order a free /48 IPv6 block:

The IPv6 prefix is delivered within 30 minutes and is visible on the network configuration page.


You need to have at least one Dedibox dedicated server to order an IPv6 prefix.


The DUID of your prefix (and each of its subnets) is like a private key and grants you access to your prefix. Keep it secret and do not share it.
