An AAAA record is an IP in the newly released IPv6 format and it is made up of 8 groups of hexadecimal numbers, as opposed to the IPv4 IPs, that include 4 sets of digits between 1 and 255. An example of an IPv6 address is 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and in this format the number of IPs that may be created is many times greater than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Each and every domain has its hosting server IP address as a record and in essence, this unique record tells the domain where the website for it can be found. Depending on the system the provider employs, the record will be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record allows you to host your site with one provider and your e-mails with a different one, so if you choose to use such a redirection to point a domain address to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you will have to create an AAAA record for it.

AAAA Records in Cloud Hosting

The cutting-edge Hepsia website hosting CP, bundled with our cloud hosting, will enable you to create a new AAAA record effortlessly. When you're in the account and you go to the DNS Records section, you'll find all records you have for any hosted domain or a subdomain under it. All it takes to create the AAAA record is to click on the New Record button, to pick the domain/subdomain in question, choose AAAA after which only type in or copy and paste the IPv6 address. We also have a step-by-step guide if you've never created records for your domains, but it is extremely unlikely that you'll need it as Hepsia is much simpler to work with compared with other Control Panels on the market. Within an hour your new record is going to be working and your domain shall start resolving to the servers of the other service provider. Additionally, there is an option to modify the TTL value, which outlines how long this record is going to be working if you change it, from the standard 3600 seconds to any value that the other service provider may require.

AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

As our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform supports AAAA records, you'll be able to create one without difficulty for every internet domain or subdomain you host within 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 service provider you direct 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 set up manually in the past. The creation of the new AAAA record is as easy as selecting the needed domain name or subdomain and the AAAA type through simple drop-down menus, entering the IPv6 address inside a text box and saving the modification. You are going to be able to edit the record at any time if needed. If the other service provider demands a specific TTL value for the new record, you'll be able to edit this setting as well. The Time To Live option defines how long an existing record will keep functioning after you edit it or delete it and the time is in seconds.
