Each device which is connected to the Internet has a specific identifier named IP (Internet Protocol) address. This includes computers, web servers, smartphones, switches, etcetera. The pool of IPs, that was introduced initially, has been distributed, so the so-called IPv4 IP addresses are progressively getting replaced with IPv6 addresses. Every domain which opens an internet site comes with an IP record, that is the address of the server where it is hosted. Using the IPv4 system, the record is called A and it consists of 4 sets of numbers from 1 to 255 divided with a dot, while with the IPv6 system it's called AAAA and it is made up of 8 sets of hexadecimal numbers i.e. this kind 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 significantly bigger amount of IPs than the IPv4 format.

AAAA Records in Shared Hosting

If you want to use a domain or a subdomain you have in a shared hosting account on our end for any third-party service and you need to set up an AAAA record for that, it will not take you more than only a few mouse clicks to do that by using our powerful, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel. When you visit the DNS Records section and click on the Create a New Record button, a little pop-up will show up. This is the place where you can set up any DNS record, so you just have to pick the needed domain or subdomain and the type of record through drop-down menus and type in the IPv6 address, that’s the actual record. Even if you have zero experience with such matters, you will not have any difficulties as Hepsia is very intuitive and your new AAAA record is going to propagate within the hour, to enable you to start using your domain/subdomain with the other service provider. In case they require it, you're also going to be able to edit the Time To Live (TTL) value for the record, defining how long it's going to remain active in the global DNS system after you change it or remove it.

AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As our leading-edge cloud hosting platform supports AAAA records, you are going to be able to create one without difficulty for any domain address 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 could start using the services of any other company you direct the domain/subdomain to in no time. You are able to create the record from the DNS Records section of your Hepsia website hosting CP in which you will also find all of the other records that were set up automatically or you have set up manually before. The set up of the new AAAA record is as basic as choosing the needed domain name or subdomain and the AAAA type from simple drop-down menus, typing the IPv6 address inside a text box and saving the modification. You're going to be able to modify the record anytime if needed. If the other company needs a particular TTL value for the new record, you will be able to modify this setting as well. The Time To Live option determines how long an existing record will keep functioning after you modify it or delete it and the time is in seconds.
