Each device that is connected to the web has a special identifier called IP (Internet Protocol) address. This includes PCs, web servers, smartphones, switches, etcetera. The pool of addresses, which was introduced originally, is already distributed, therefore the so-called IPv4 IP addresses are gradually being replaced with IPv6 addresses. Every domain name that opens a site has an IP record, which is the address of the server where it is hosted. With the IPv4 system, the record is called A and it is made up of four groups of numbers from 1 to 255 separated by a dot, while with the IPv6 system it is called AAAA and it consists of eight sets of hexadecimal numbers i.e. this sort of records use numbers from 0 to 9 and letters from A to F. An example of an AAAA record is 2010:0c48:43d3:2142:1012:8c3a:2475:2435 and this format can handle a considerably bigger amount of IPs when compared with the IPv4 format.

AAAA Records in Cloud Website Hosting

The highly developed Hepsia web hosting CP, bundled with our cloud website hosting, will allow you to create a new AAAA record effortlessly. When you are within the account and you visit the DNS Records section, you will find all records that you have for any hosted domain name or a subdomain under it. All it takes to create the AAAA record is to click the New Record button, to choose the domain/subdomain in question, choose AAAA and then just enter 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 addresses, but it is extremely unlikely that you will need it as Hepsia is much simpler to employ in comparison with other Control Panels available on the market. Within an hour your new record shall be active and your domain address will start resolving to the servers of the other provider. There's also an option to modify the TTL value, which determines how long this record will be working if you change it, from the default 3600 seconds to any value that the other company 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 without difficulty for any domain address or subdomain that you host inside 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 provider you forward the domain/subdomain to in no time. You are able to create the record from the DNS Records section of your Hepsia hosting CP in which you will also find all of the other records that were set up automatically or you have set up manually in the past. The creation of the new AAAA record is as basic as picking out the needed domain name or subdomain and the AAAA type via simple drop-down menus, typing the IPv6 address in a text box and saving the change. You'll be able to modify the record at any time if required. Assuming the other service provider demands a specific TTL value for the new record, you will be able to edit this setting as well. The Time To Live option outlines how long an existing record will keep operating after you edit it or remove it and the time is in seconds.
