Allow IPv6 to be enabled by default when using Netlify DNS

After a user has deployed their site with netlify DNS, they have to explicitly enable IPv6 records, whereas it is enabled by default when using a different NS or using the default subdomain.

This feature request is to reduce confusion between mismatched behavior.

From Netlify IPv6 blog article

We are delighted to announce that we have begun the rollout of our IPv6 support across our global ADN. What should you expect?

  • If you are serving your sites on a subdomain of netlify.com such as your-site.netlify.com you have nothing to do. Your sites will automatically begin using IPv6 on our ADN without any intervention from you.
  • If you are using custom domains registered from an external domain registrar, you will also automatically begin using IPv6 on our ADN without intervention.
  • If you use Netlify for DNS management, then you can go to the Domains section on our dashboard and enable IPv6 for each of your domains.

So if a user migrates from custom DNS to netlify DNS, IPv6 will be disabled unless manually enabled?

Please allow IPv6 behavior to be standardized across all DNS configurations
Thanks :slight_smile:
