Every device that's connected to the web has a specific identifier called IP (Internet Protocol) address. This includes computers, web servers, smart phones, switches, etcetera. The pool of IP addresses, which was introduced originally, is already distributed, therefore the so-called IPv4 IP addresses are steadily being replaced with IPv6 addresses. Every domain name which opens an internet site has an IP record, which is the address of the server where it's hosted. Using the IPv4 system, the record is called A and it comprises of 4 groups of numbers from 1 to 255 divided by a dot, while within the IPv6 system it's called AAAA and it is comprised of eight sets of hexadecimal numbers i.e. this type of records use digits 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 is designed for a substantially greater number of IPs than the IPv4 format.

AAAA Records in Cloud Web Hosting

If you'd like to use a domain address or a subdomain that you have in 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 a few mouse clicks to do this using our amazing, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP. As soon as you go to the DNS Records section and click on the Create a New Record button, a small pop-up will appear. This is the place where you could create any DNS record, so you simply have to choose the needed domain name or subdomain and the type of record via drop-down menus and enter the IPv6 address, that’s the actual record. If you happen to have zero experience with such matters, you will not have any troubles as Hepsia is incredibly user-friendly and your new AAAA record is going to propagate within the hour, so that you can start using your domain/subdomain with the other provider. In case they demand it, you'll also be able to change the Time To Live (TTL) value for the record, defining how long it's going to stay active in the global DNS system after you modify it or erase it.

AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As our leading-edge cloud hosting platform supports AAAA records, you're going to 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, to enable you to start using the services of any other service provider you point the domain/subdomain to in no time. You can create the record from the DNS Records section of your Hepsia hosting CP in which you will also find all 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 selecting the needed Internet domain or subdomain and the AAAA type through simple drop-down menus, entering the IPv6 address in a text box and saving the modification. You are going to be able to modify the record at any time if needed. If the other provider demands a certain TTL value for the new record, you will be able to change this setting too. The Time To Live option defines how long an existing record will continue operating after you modify it or erase it and the time is in seconds.
