An AAAA record is an Internet protocol address within the freshly launched IPv6 format and it is comprised of eight different sets of hexadecimal digits, unlike the IPv4 IPs, which feature four sets of numbers between 1 and 255. A good example of an IPv6 address is 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and with this format the total number of IPs that can be created is many times larger than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Each and every domain name has its website hosting server Internet protocol address as a record and in essence, this unique record informs the domain address where the site for it is. Depending on the system the service provider uses, the record will be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record will allow you to host your Internet site with one provider and your email messages with a different one, so if you choose to use this kind of redirection to forward a domain name to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you will need to set up an AAAA record for it.
AAAA Records in Cloud Web Hosting
The highly developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, bundled with our cloud web hosting, will permit you to create a new AAAA record effortlessly. Once you are in the account and you go to the DNS Records section, you'll discover all records that you have for any hosted domain address or a subdomain under it. All it takes to create the AAAA record is to click the New Record button, to select the domain/subdomain in question, select AAAA and then just type in or copy and paste the IPv6 address. We've got a step-by-step guide in case you have never created records for your domain names, but it's not likely that you will need it as Hepsia is much simpler to work with than other Control Panels on the market. Within an hour your new record is going to be working and your domain address shall start resolving to the servers of the other company. There's also an option to edit the TTL value, which determines how long this record will be active if you modify it, from the standard 3600 seconds to any value which the other provider may require.
AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our advanced cloud hosting platform supports AAAA records, you are going to be able to create one without difficulty for every internet domain or subdomain that 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 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 of the other records that were created automatically or you have set up manually before. The creation of the new AAAA record is as basic as picking the needed domain or subdomain and the AAAA type via simple drop-down menus, entering the IPv6 address inside a text box and saving the change. You'll be able to modify the record at any time if necessary. In case the other provider needs a particular TTL value for the new record, you'll be able to edit this setting too. The Time To Live option determines how long an existing record will continue functioning after you modify it or erase it and the time is in seconds.
