An AAAA record is an IP within the freshly launched IPv6 format and it is comprised of 8 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 in this format the sheer number of IPs which can be created is many times greater than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Each and every domain has its hosting server IP as a record and in essence, that record instructs the domain name where the website for it is. Depending on the system the company uses, 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 e-mails with a different one, so if you choose to use this type of redirection to point a domain name to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you will need to create an AAAA record for it.
AAAA Records in Hosting
If you want to use a domain name or a subdomain you have in a 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 clicks to do that by using our highly effective, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP. After you navigate to the DNS Records section and click the Create a New Record button, a small pop-up will appear. This is the place where you could set up any DNS record, so you simply have to select the needed domain or subdomain and the type of record through drop-down menus and enter the IPv6 address, that’s the actual record. If you happen to have no experience with such matters, you'll not have any troubles as Hepsia is quite user-friendly and the new AAAA record will propagate within the hour, to enable you to start using your domain/subdomain with the other service provider. 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 change it or remove it.
AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our leading-edge cloud hosting platform supports AAAA records, you are going to be able to create one without difficulty for any domain name or subdomain which you host in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and the new record is going to propagate within the hour, to enable you to 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 hosting Control Panel where you will also find all of the other records that were created automatically or you have set up manually before. The set up of the new AAAA record is as easy as picking out the needed domain or subdomain and the AAAA type via simple drop-down menus, entering the IPv6 address within a text box and saving the modification. You will be able to edit the record anytime if needed. If the other provider requires a specific TTL value for the new record, you'll be able to modify this setting as well. The Time To Live option outlines how long an existing record will continue operating after you change it or delete it and the time is in seconds.
