Every single device which is connected to the web has a unique identifier called IP (Internet Protocol) address. This includes PCs, web servers, smartphones, switches, etcetera. The pool of IP addresses, that was introduced initially, has been distributed, therefore the so-called IPv4 IP addresses are gradually being replaced with IPv6 addresses. Every domain name which opens a site comes with an IP record, that is the address of the server where it's hosted. With the IPv4 system, the record is called A and it is made up of 4 sets of numbers from 1 to 255 separated by a dot, while in the IPv6 system it's called AAAA and it comprises of eight sets of hexadecimal numbers i.e. this sort of records use digits from 0 to 9 and letters from A to F. A good example of an AAAA record is 2010:0c48:43d3:2142:1012:8c3a:2475:2435 and this format supports a considerably larger amount of IPs in comparison with the IPv4 format.

AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

As our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform supports AAAA records, you're going to be able to create one with ease for any domain or subdomain 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 forward the domain/subdomain to right away. You could create the record from the DNS Records section of your Hepsia website hosting CP where you will also find all other records that were set up automatically or you have set up manually in the past. The set up of the new AAAA record is as basic as choosing the needed domain or subdomain and the AAAA type from simple drop-down menus, inputting the IPv6 address within a text box and saving the change. You will be able to change the record anytime if required. In case the other company demands a particular TTL value for the new record, you'll be able to modify this setting as well. The Time To Live option determines how long an existing record will continue functioning after you modify it or delete it and the time is in seconds.
