Bye ns1, hello unicast.censurfridns.dk, new v6 IP

Today has been moved to new hardware to improve response times and stability. The server has also been renamed from ns1.uncensoreddns.org to unicast.uncensoreddns.org to better reflect reality.

The old "ns1" name signalled some level of being the "first" or "primary" server, which is not true. DNS doesn't even have a concept of primary and secondary servers. Since anycast.uncensoreddns.org is served by multiple servers it makes sense to configure that first, making "ns1" an inappropriate name for the unicast server.

Along with the new name unicast.uncensoreddns.org I finally got around to fixing native ipv6 for the server. The new v6 ip for unicast.uncensoreddns.org is 2a01:3a0:53:53::

The old 6to4 based v6 IP 2002:d596:2a92:1:71:53:: will keep responding for a few months. I will shut it down on May 1st 2017. Make sure you update your configs before that time!
