If my web host's network doesn't currently support IPv6, what happens when an IPv6 user tries to visit my website? Will an error message come up?

I dont think anything supports IPv6 unless its Linux. So, no point using it

Will an error message come up?If your host doesn't support ipv6, just don't define an AAAA record for the domain. When an ipv6-only user tries to access your site, they'll get the standard 'unable to resolve domain' error.

Realistically, there are currently *zero* ipv6-only users on the public internet, so you don't have to worry about it.

Still zero. What you will see more of is ipv4 NAT on the ISP side.
