An AAAA record is an IP within the recently launched IPv6 format and it comprises of eight different sets of hexadecimal digits, unlike the IPv4 IPs, that include 4 groups of digits between 1 and 255. An example of an IPv6 address is 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and in this format the total number of IPs that could be created is many times higher than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Every domain name has its web hosting server IP as a record and in essence, this unique record tells the domain name where the site for it can be found. Depending on the system the provider uses, the record will be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record permits you to host your Internet site with one company and your email messages with another, so if you choose to use such a redirection to point a domain address to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you will need to set up an AAAA record for it.
AAAA Records in Cloud Website Hosting
The cutting-edge Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with our cloud website hosting, will permit you to create a new AAAA record without difficulty. Once you are inside the account and you go to the DNS Records section, you will discover all records that you have for any hosted domain name or a subdomain under it. All it takes to set up the AAAA record is to click the New Record button, to select the domain/subdomain in question, pick AAAA after which simply type or copy and paste the IPv6 address. We also have a step-by-step guide if you've never created records for your domain addresses, but it's less likely that you will need it as Hepsia is much easier to employ than other Control Panels on the market. Within an hour your new record is going to be live and your domain will start resolving to the servers of the other company. In addition, there’s an option to edit the TTL value, which outlines how long this record will be working if you change it, from the default 3600 seconds to any value which the other provider may require.
AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
As our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform supports AAAA records, you will be able to create one effortlessly for any internet domain or subdomain you host in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and the new record is going to propagate within the hour, so you can start using the services of any other company you point the domain/subdomain to right away. You are able to create the record from the DNS Records section of your Hepsia website hosting CP in which you will also find all of the other records that were set up automatically or you have set up manually before. The set up of the new AAAA record is as simple as picking out the needed domain name or subdomain and the AAAA type through simple drop-down menus, entering the IPv6 address within a text box and saving the modification. You are going to be able to change the record anytime if needed. If the other company requires a certain TTL value for the new record, you will be able to modify this setting as well. The Time To Live option determines how long an existing record will keep functioning after you edit it or erase it and the time is in seconds.
