AAAA is a domain record, that's basically the IPv6 address of the web server where the domain name is hosted. The IPv6 system was introduced to replace the present IPv4 system in which every single Internet protocol address is made up of 4 groups of decimal digits which range from 1 to 255 e.g. 5.168.208.143. In contrast, an IPv6 address features 8 sets of four hexadecimal numbers - which range from 0 to 9 and from A to F. The main reason for this modification is the considerably smaller selection of unique IPs which the present system supports and also the speedy increase of units which are connected to the world wide web. A good example of an IPv6 address is 2101:1f34:32e2:2415:1365:4f2b:2553:1345. If you need to forward a domain to a machine that uses this kind of an address, you will have to create an AAAA record for it, not the widely used A record, which is an IPv4 address. The 2 records provide the very same function, yet different notations are used, so as to separate the two sorts of addresses.

AAAA Records in Cloud Hosting

If you want to set up a new AAAA record for any domain address or subdomain hosted within your cloud hosting account, it will not take you more than a couple of easy steps to do that. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel is very intuitive to use and is going to permit you to set up or change every single record with ease. After you sign in and go to the DNS Records section, in which you'll discover all present records for your domains and subdomains, you will simply have to click the "New" button, choose AAAA from a small drop-down menu inside the pop-up which will show up, input or paste the required IPv6 address and save the modification - it's as simple as that. The new record will be fully working within no more than 1 hour and the hostname that you have created it for is going to start opening whatever content you have with the other provider. If needed, you are also going to be able to modify the TTL (Time To Live) value, which reveals the time in seconds the new record will be functioning after you eventually edit it to something different or you simply delete it.

AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform supports AAAA records, you'll be able to create one with no trouble for any domain address or subdomain you host in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and the new record will propagate within the hour, so that you can start using the services of any other service provider you point the domain/subdomain to right away. You are able to create the record from the DNS Records section of your Hepsia hosting CP where you will also find all 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 picking out the needed domain name or subdomain and the AAAA type through simple drop-down menus, inputting the IPv6 address in a text box and saving the change. You'll be able to change the record anytime if needed. Assuming the other service provider needs a specific TTL value for the new record, you'll be able to modify this setting too. The Time To Live option specifies how long an existing record will keep operating after you edit it or remove it and the time is in seconds.
