Access website via IPv6 address

There are several ways, how one can access a website. Using domain name (i.e. http//www.example.com/) is one of most popular. We can also use IPv4 address (i.e. http://216.58.194.174/). In certain situations URL can be "enhanced" with port number, login and password etc.

A bit less known option is to access an URL using IPv6 address. You only need to enclose it inside square brackets i.e.:

http://[49d7::2e27:fe80:fe0d:d8ff]/webservices.html

Edit: Thanks to Foo Bar for correcting an obvious, yet fundamental mistake to this article.
