An AAAA record is an Internet protocol address in the newly released IPv6 format and it consists of 8 sets of hexadecimal numbers, as opposed to the IPv4 IPs, that include four groups of digits between 1 and 255. An example of an IPv6 address would be 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and in this format the amount of IPs which can be created is many times larger than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Every domain has its website hosting server IP as a record and in essence, this unique record informs the domain name where the Internet site 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 will allow you to host your site with one provider and your e-mails with a different one, so if you decide to use such a redirection to forward a domain address to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you'll have to set up an AAAA record for it.
AAAA Records in Cloud Web Hosting
If you'd like to use a domain address or a subdomain that you have within a cloud web hosting account on our end for any third-party service and you ought to create an AAAA record for that, it won't take you more than just a few clicks to do that by using our effective, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP. Once you navigate to the DNS Records section and click the Create a New Record button, a compact pop-up will show up. This is the area in which you can set up any DNS record, so you simply have to select the needed domain address or subdomain and the type of record via drop-down options menu and type in the IPv6 address, that’s the actual record. Even if you have zero 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, so that you can start using your domain/subdomain with the other service provider. If they require it, you will also be able to edit the Time To Live (TTL) value for the record, determining how long it'll stay active in the global DNS system after you change it or delete it.
AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our innovative cloud hosting platform supports AAAA records, you will be able to create one without difficulty for every internet domain or subdomain which you host in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and the new record will propagate within the hour, so you can start using the services of any other company you direct the domain/subdomain to in no time. You are able to create the record from the DNS Records section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel where you will also find all of the other records that were set up automatically or you have set up manually previously. The set up of the new AAAA record is as easy as picking out the needed domain or subdomain and the AAAA type from simple drop-down menus, typing the IPv6 address in a text box and saving the change. You will be able to change the record anytime if necessary. If the other company demands a certain TTL value for the new record, you'll be able to change this setting too. The Time To Live option outlines how long an existing record will keep operating after you modify it or erase it and the time is in seconds.
