An AAAA record is an Internet protocol address in the recently introduced IPv6 format and it comprises of eight different sets of hexadecimal digits, as opposed to the IPv4 IPs, that include four groups of numbers between 1 and 255. A good example of an IPv6 address would be 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and in this format the total number of IPs that could be created is many times bigger than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Every domain name has its website hosting server IP address as a record and in essence, this unique record instructs the domain address where the Internet site for it is located. Depending on the system that the provider 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 company and your e-mails with a different one, so if you choose to use such a redirection to point a domain to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you'll have to set up an AAAA record for it.

AAAA Records in Shared Website Hosting

If you want to use a domain address or a subdomain you have within a shared website hosting account on our end for any third-party service and you have to create an AAAA record for that, it will not take you more than only a few mouse clicks to do that by using our amazing, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP. When you visit the DNS Records section and then click the Create a New Record button, a compact pop-up will show up. This is the area in which you can set up any DNS record, so you just have to select the needed domain name or subdomain and the type of record via drop-down options menu and input the IPv6 address, that’s the actual record. Even if you have zero experience with such matters, you will not have any problems as Hepsia is incredibly intuitive and the new AAAA record is going to propagate within the hour, so that you can start using your domain/subdomain with the other company. Provided they demand it, you'll also be able to change the Time To Live (TTL) value for the record, determining how long it'll remain active in the global DNS system after you modify it or delete it.

AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

As our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform supports AAAA records, you will be able to create one with no trouble for every domain address or subdomain you host inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company and the new record will propagate within the hour, to enable you to start using the services of any other company you point the domain/subdomain to in no time. You could create the record from the DNS Records section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel in which you will also find all other records that were set up automatically or you have created manually previously. The set up of the new AAAA record is as basic as picking out the needed domain name or subdomain and the AAAA type through simple drop-down menus, inputting the IPv6 address within a text box and saving the change. You are going to be able to change the record anytime if necessary. If the other provider demands a specific TTL value for the new record, you'll be able to change this setting also. The Time To Live option determines how long an existing record will keep operating after you edit it or remove it and the time is in seconds.
