Access website using IPv6 IP address

Matt 12 Rep.

I got a new Linux server with CentOS 7. I installed Apache and uploaded my contents. Now, I want to check my website using IP address directly but the real problem is, the server has IPv6 only. I tried to access my IPv6 IP directly in my browser (like we do for IPv4) but it did not work. Is there a different method to access IPv6 IP directly in browser?
