An AAAA record is an IP in the newly released IPv6 format and it consists of 8 groups of hexadecimal numbers, unlike the IPv4 IPs, that include four sets of digits between 1 and 255. An example of an IPv6 address is 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and with this format the sheer number of IPs which can be created is many times greater than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Every single domain name has its web hosting server Internet protocol as a record and in essence, that record tells the domain name where the website for it is located. Depending on the system the company employs, the record is going to be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record permits you to host your Internet site with one provider and your e-mails with a different one, so if you decide to use this sort of redirection to forward a domain to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you will need to create an AAAA record for it.

AAAA Records in Cloud Website Hosting

If you would like to set up a new AAAA record a domain or subdomain hosted within your cloud website hosting account, it will not take you more than several easy steps to do that. Our in-house built Hepsia CP is rather intuitive to use and it'll allow you to set up or change every single record without difficulty. When you log in and navigate to the DNS Records section, where you can find all existing records for your domain names and subdomains, you'll only have to click on the "New" button, pick AAAA from a small drop-down options menu inside the pop-up which will show up, type or paste the required IPv6 address and save the change - it is as basic as that. The new record will be 100% live within no more than an hour and the hostname you have created it for will start opening whatever content you have with the other provider. If needed, you'll also be able to change the TTL (Time To Live) value, which shows the time in seconds which the new record will be live after you eventually change it to something different or you simply remove it.

AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

As our innovative cloud hosting platform supports AAAA records, you will be able to create one with no trouble for any domain or subdomain you host inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and the new record is going to propagate within the hour, so you can start using the services of any other company you direct the domain/subdomain to right away. You can create the record from the DNS Records section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel in which you will also find all of the other records that were set up automatically or you have set up manually previously. The set up of the new AAAA record is as basic as picking the needed domain or subdomain and the AAAA type through simple drop-down menus, inputting the IPv6 address in a text box and saving the change. You'll be able to change the record anytime if needed. In case the other company demands a certain TTL value for the new record, you'll be able to edit this setting as well. The Time To Live option outlines how long an existing record will continue working after you edit it or remove it and the time is in seconds.
