An AAAA record is an Internet protocol address within the freshly launched IPv6 format and it is made up of eight different groups of hexadecimal numbers, unlike the IPv4 IPs, that include 4 groups of numbers between 1 and 255. An example of an IPv6 address would be 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and in this format the sheer number of IPs that may be created is many times higher than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Each and every domain has its website hosting server IP as a record and in essence, this unique record instructs the domain where the site for it can be found. Depending on the system which the company uses, the record is going to be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record enables you to host your Internet site with one company and your email messages 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 have to create an AAAA record for it.

AAAA Records in Cloud Web Hosting

If you'd like to create a new AAAA record a domain address or subdomain hosted in your cloud web hosting account, it won't take you more than several basic steps to do that. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is quite intuitive to use and is going to enable you to create or modify every single record without difficulty. Once you log in and go to the DNS Records section, in which you'll discover all current records for your domain names and subdomains, you'll only have to click the "New" button, select AAAA from a small drop-down options menu inside the pop-up that will appear, type or paste the necessary IPv6 address and save the change - it's as basic as that. The new record is going to be fully functioning within a maximum of an hour and the hostname you have created it for is going to start opening whatever content you have with the other company. When required, you are also going to be able to edit the TTL (Time To Live) value, which indicates the time in seconds which the new record will be live after you eventually edit it to something different or you simply delete it.

AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform supports AAAA records, you will be able to create one with no trouble for every domain name 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 that you could start using the services of any other service provider you direct the domain/subdomain to in no time. You are able to create the record from the DNS Records section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel in which you will also find all other records that were created automatically or you have created manually in the past. The set up of the new AAAA record is as simple as selecting the needed domain or subdomain and the AAAA type via simple drop-down menus, inputting the IPv6 address inside a text box and saving the modification. You will be able to modify the record at any time if needed. In case the other service provider requires a specific TTL value for the new record, you'll be able to modify this setting too. The Time To Live option determines how long an existing record will continue operating after you edit it or erase it and the time is in seconds.
