An AAAA record is an IP address in the freshly presented IPv6 format and it consists of 8 different groups of hexadecimal digits, unlike the IPv4 IPs, that include 4 sets of numbers in between 1 and 255. A good example of an IPv6 address would be 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. Every single domain name has its website hosting server IP address as a record and in essence, this record informs the domain where the Internet site for it can be found. Depending on the system which the service 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 company and your emails with a different one, so if you choose to use this kind of redirection to point a domain name to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you'll need to set up an AAAA record for it.

AAAA Records in Cloud Website Hosting

If you want to create a new AAAA record a domain address or subdomain hosted inside your cloud website hosting account, it won't take you more than several basic steps to do that. Our in-house built Hepsia CP is very intuitive to use and it will permit you to create or edit every single record with ease. Once you log in and visit the DNS Records section, where you'll discover all current records for your domain addresses and subdomains, you will simply have to click the "New" button, select AAAA from a small drop-down menu inside the pop-up which will show up, enter or paste the required IPv6 address and save the modification - it is as easy as that. The new record is going to be fully active within no more than 1 hour and the hostname that you have created it for is going to start opening whatever content you have with the other provider. If necessary, you'll also be able to change the TTL (Time To Live) value, which indicates the time in seconds that the new record will be active after you eventually modify it to something different or you simply remove it.

You're going to be able to modify the record anytime if necessary. If the other service provider requires a certain TTL value for the new record, you'll be able to modify this setting also. The Time To Live option outlines how long an existing record will keep working after you change it or delete it and the time is in seconds.
