bgpstuff.net has been far more successful than I could imagine. I initially created it as a side project to learn how to create a website directly with Go. I also used gRPC between the front and backs ends. Since I created the first implementation it’s now served nearly 2 million requests. Soon after the initial version, I added JSON support. The reason being that I wanted to create a RESTful API for users to query.
2020 was an eventual year in regards to the BGP table. RPKI saw a rapid increase, and we also finally broke over 100,000 IPv6 prefixes in the default free zone. IPv6 growth We started 2020 with an IPv6 count of 78,870. In just a single year we’ve rocketed up to 104,413. That’s an increase of 25,543 IPv6 prefixes, or a 32.39% increase. For comparison, 2020 started with 807,446 IPv4 prefixes and ended with 846,051.
