1. Your web server (operating system, too) needs to be IPv6 enabled.
2. You need to have IPv6 connectivity between your web server and your 
borders.  If you have firewalls in front of your web server, they also 
need to be configured to pass IPv6 traffic appropriately.
3. You need to have IPv6 connectivity with at least one outside 
connectivity provider.
4. Your website should have valid IPv6 DNS (unless you want to force users 
to type in an IPv6 address to reach your site ;)  )

There are numerous resources online to help people understand how to 
deploy IPv6 services on their networks.  I would suggest starting there.    is a good starting point.

Whichever web server software you're using (Apache, etc) likely has 
support information or howtos for setting up IPv6 services.  Same goes for 
whatever operating system you're using.
