An AAAA record is an IP address in the newly presented IPv6 format and it is comprised of eight different groups of hexadecimal digits, unlike the IPv4 IPs, that include four groups of digits 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 can be created is many times larger than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Each and every domain has its hosting server Internet protocol address as a record and in essence, this record tells the domain address where the site for it is. Depending on the system which 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 provider and your emails with a different one, so if you decide to use this type of redirection to forward a domain name to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you'll need to create an AAAA record for it.

AAAA Records in Web Hosting

If you wish to use a domain name or a subdomain which you have in a web hosting account on our end for any third-party service and you have to set up an AAAA record for that, it won't take you more than only a few clicks to do this via our powerful, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP. After you visit the DNS Records section and click the Create a New Record button, a little pop-up will appear. This is the spot in which you can set up any DNS record, so you simply have to choose the needed domain address or subdomain and the type of record through drop-down menus and enter the IPv6 address, which is the actual record. In case you have no experience with such matters, you won't have any problems as Hepsia is extremely intuitive and the new AAAA record is going to propagate within the hour, to enable you to start using your domain/subdomain with the other company. In case they require it, you are also going to be able to change the Time To Live (TTL) value for the record, determining how long it's going to stay active in the global DNS system after you modify it or delete it.

AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

As our innovative cloud web hosting platform supports AAAA records, you're going to be able to create one without difficulty for any domain address or subdomain you host within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and the new record will propagate within the hour, so that you could 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 Control Panel in which you will also find all of the other records that were set up automatically or you have created manually previously. The creation of the new AAAA record is as simple as picking the needed Internet domain or subdomain and the AAAA type through simple drop-down menus, entering the IPv6 address within a text box and saving the change. You will be able to edit the record anytime if needed. If the other service provider demands a specific TTL value for the new record, you will be able to change this setting too. The Time To Live option defines how long an existing record will keep functioning after you change it or delete it and the time is in seconds.
