An AAAA record is an Internet protocol address in the recently presented IPv6 format and it comprises of 8 different sets of hexadecimal digits, as opposed to the IPv4 IPs, that include 4 groups of digits between 1 and 255. An illustration of an IPv6 address is 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and in this format the amount of IPs that could be created is many times bigger than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Each and every domain has its hosting server Internet protocol as a record and in essence, that record tells the domain address where the site for it is. Depending on the system the provider uses, the record is going to be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record will allow you to host your Internet site with one provider and your e-mails with a different one, so if you decide to use this kind of redirection to forward a domain name to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you'll have to create an AAAA record for it.
AAAA Records in Shared Web Hosting
In order to use a domain or a subdomain you have within a shared 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 a few clicks to do that by using our amazing, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. As soon as you visit the DNS Records section and click on the Create a New Record button, a small pop-up will appear. This is the spot where you can set up any DNS record, so you simply have to choose the needed domain or subdomain and the type of record from drop-down menus and type in the IPv6 address, that’s the actual record. Just in case you have zero experience with such matters, you will not have any difficulties as Hepsia is incredibly user-friendly and the new AAAA record is going to propagate within the hour, so that you can start using your domain/subdomain with the other provider. Provided they demand it, you'll also be able to modify the Time To Live (TTL) value for the record, determining how long it is going to remain active in the global DNS system after you edit it or delete it.
AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform supports AAAA records, you're going to be able to create one easily for any internet domain or subdomain which you host within a semi-dedicated server account from our company and the new record will 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 can create the record from the DNS Records section of your Hepsia hosting CP where you will also find all other records that were created automatically or you have created manually in the past. The set up of the new AAAA record is as basic as picking out the needed Internet domain or subdomain and the AAAA type via simple drop-down menus, entering the IPv6 address in a text box and saving the change. You are going to be able to edit the record at any time if required. If the other provider demands a certain TTL value for the new record, you'll be able to modify this setting also. The Time To Live option specifies how long an existing record will continue functioning after you edit it or erase it and the time is in seconds.
