An AAAA record is an Internet protocol address in the newly introduced IPv6 format and it is made up of 8 different groups of hexadecimal digits, unlike the IPv4 IPs, which include four sets of numbers between 1 and 255. An example of an IPv6 address is 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and with this format the number of IPs which can be created is many times bigger than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Every domain name has its website hosting server Internet protocol as a record and in essence, this unique record informs the domain where the website for it can be found. Depending on the system that the provider uses, the record is going to be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record enables you to host your site with one provider and your email messages with another, so if you decide to use such a redirection to forward a domain address to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you'll need to set up an AAAA record for it.

AAAA Records in Website Hosting

In order to use a domain address or a subdomain that you have in a website hosting account on our end for any third-party service and you need to create an AAAA record for that, it is not going to take you more than only a few mouse clicks to do that through our amazing, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP. As soon as you go to the DNS Records section and click on the Create a New Record button, a small pop-up will appear. This is the area where you can create any DNS record, so you simply have to pick the needed domain or subdomain and the type of record via drop-down menus and input the IPv6 address, that is the actual record. Just in case you have no experience with such matters, you'll not have any problems as Hepsia is quite intuitive and the new AAAA record will propagate within the hour, so you can start using your domain/subdomain with the other company. If they demand it, you will also be able to change the Time To Live (TTL) value for the record, defining how long it'll remain active in the global DNS system after you modify it or erase it.

AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform supports AAAA records, you'll be able to create one easily for every domain or subdomain you host in 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 provider you point the domain/subdomain to right away. You are able to create the record from the DNS Records section of your Hepsia hosting CP in which you will also find all the other records that were set up automatically or you have created manually before. The set up of the new AAAA record is as simple as picking 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 modification. You're going to be able to modify the record anytime if necessary. If the other provider demands a specific TTL value for the new record, you'll be able to edit this setting also. The Time To Live option outlines how long an existing record will keep working after you modify it or remove it and the time is in seconds.
