An AAAA record is an Internet protocol address within the recently presented IPv6 format and it is comprised of eight different sets of hexadecimal digits, unlike the IPv4 IPs, that include 4 groups of numbers between 1 and 255. An illustration of an IPv6 address would be 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and in this format the amount of IPs that may be created is many times higher than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Each domain has its web hosting server IP as a record and in essence, this record instructs the domain name where the site for it can be found. Depending on the system that the service provider employs, the record is going to be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record permits you to host your Internet site with one company and your e-mails with a different one, so if you decide to use such a redirection to point a domain name to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you will have to set up an AAAA record for it.

AAAA Records in Cloud Website Hosting

If you'd like to set up a new AAAA record a domain name or subdomain hosted within your cloud website hosting account, it won't take you more than a couple of easy steps to do that. Our in-house built Hepsia CP is very intuitive to use and it will allow you to set up or modify every record easily. After you log in and visit the DNS Records section, where you can find all present records for your domain names and subdomains, you will simply have to click the "New" button, pick AAAA from a small drop-down options menu within the pop-up which will show up, enter or paste the needed IPv6 address and save the change - it is as simple as that. The new record shall be 100% working within only 1 hour and the hostname you have created it for shall start opening whatever content you have with the other provider. If necessary, you will also be able to change the TTL (Time To Live) value, which indicates the time in seconds which the new record will be functioning after you eventually change it to something different or you simply remove it.

The creation of the new AAAA record is as easy as selecting 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 change. You are going to be able to change the record anytime if necessary. Assuming the other provider demands a certain TTL value for the new record, you will be able to change this setting as well. The Time To Live option specifies how long an existing record will keep functioning after you modify it or erase it and the time is in seconds.
