AAAA is a domain address record, that's basically the IPv6 address of the server where the domain is hosted. The IPv6 system was intended to replace the existing IPv4 system where every IP address is made up of 4 sets of decimal digits ranging from 1 to 255 e.g. 126.96.36.199. On the other hand, an IPv6 address has eight groups of 4 hexadecimal numbers - which range from 0 to 9 and from A to F. The main reason for this transformation is the substantially smaller amount of unique IPs that the existing system supports and also the speedy increase of products which are connected to the Internet. An illustration of an IPv6 address is 2101:1f34:32e2:2415:1365:4f2b:2553:1345. If you wish to direct a domain address to a server that uses this kind of an address, you need to set up an AAAA record for it, and not the widely used A record, that is an IPv4 address. The two records have the same exact function, but different notations are used, to distinguish the two types of addresses.
AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our advanced cloud hosting platform supports AAAA records, you're going to be able to create one with no trouble for every domain or subdomain you host inside a semi-dedicated server
account from our company and the new record is going to propagate within the hour, to enable you to start using the services of any other company you point the domain/subdomain to in no time. You could create the record from the DNS Records section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel where you will also find all other records that were created automatically or you have created manually before. The creation of the new AAAA record is as basic as selecting the needed domain name or subdomain and the AAAA type from simple drop-down menus, entering the IPv6 address inside a text box and saving the change. You will be able to change the record anytime if required. In case the other service provider demands a certain TTL value for the new record, you will be able to edit this setting also. The Time To Live option specifies how long an existing record will keep operating after you edit it or delete it and the time is in seconds.
