An AAAA record is an Internet protocol address in the recently released IPv6 format and it comprises of 8 different sets of hexadecimal numbers, unlike the IPv4 IPs, which feature 4 sets of numbers between 1 and 255. A good example of an IPv6 address is 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and with this format the amount of IPs that may be created is many times higher than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Every domain name has its web hosting server Internet protocol as a record and in essence, that record tells the domain name where the Internet 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 allows you to host your website with one provider and your e-mails with a different one, so if you decide to use such a redirection to forward a domain to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you'll have to set up an AAAA record for it.

AAAA Records in Cloud Website Hosting

In order to use a domain or a subdomain which you have in a cloud website hosting account on our end for any third-party service and you need to create an AAAA record for that, it will not take you more than just a few mouse clicks to do that through our highly effective, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP. As soon as you navigate to the DNS Records section and then click the Create a New Record button, a compact pop-up will appear. This is the place in which you can create any DNS record, so you simply have to pick the needed domain address or subdomain and the type of record through drop-down options menu and type in the IPv6 address, which is the actual record. Even if you have zero experience with such matters, you won't have any troubles as Hepsia is very user-friendly and your new AAAA record will propagate within the hour, so you can start using your domain/subdomain with the other service provider. Provided they require it, you will also be able to edit the Time To Live (TTL) value for the record, determining how long it will remain active in the global DNS system after you modify it or delete it.

AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As our advanced cloud hosting platform supports AAAA records, you will be able to create one with no trouble for every 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 that you could start using the services of any other provider you point the domain/subdomain to right away. You could create the record from the DNS Records section of your Hepsia hosting CP where you will also find all the other records that were created automatically or you have created manually in the past. The set up of the new AAAA record is as basic as picking the needed domain name or subdomain and the AAAA type via simple drop-down menus, typing the IPv6 address inside a text box and saving the modification. You're going to be able to change the record anytime if needed. Assuming the other provider requires a specific TTL value for the new record, you'll be able to edit this setting as well. The Time To Live option specifies how long an existing record will keep functioning after you change it or erase it and the time is in seconds.
