AAAA Records in Cloud Hosting
If you are using a service through a third-party service provider and you need to set up an AAAA record to point a domain name or a subdomain to their system, you will be able to do that with a few clicks in the Hepsia CP, supplied with our cloud hosting solutions. Once you log in, you will need to visit the DNS Records section where you will find all the records for any domain name or subdomain hosted in the account. Creating a new record is as simple as clicking on a button, selecting the type from a drop-down menu, that is to be AAAA in this case, and then entering the value, or the actual IPv6 address, within a text box. As an extra option you can edit the TTL value (Time To Live), that outlines how long the record will be functioning after you modify it or delete it in the future. The new AAAA record will be live in just an hour and will propagate around the world a few hours later, so the hostname for which you have created it will start pointing to the new server.
AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Setting up a new AAAA record for a domain name or a subdomain hosted in a semi-dedicated server from our company includes only a couple of simple steps, which you will be able to find within the Help section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel as well. You'll need to pick the hostname for which the new record will be created from a drop-down menu in which you will find all of your domain addresses and subdomains. Creating the new AAAA record is as simple as choosing the one that you need and entering the IPv6 address for it. This is done with no more than a few clicks, so you can effortlessly forward any hostname to a different service provider by using an AAAA record and use it with whatever service they supply. It's going to take just a few seconds for the new record to be working and only about an hour for it to propagate around the globe, so you will be done in no time. The other provider may also request you to set some TTL value for the AAAA record, which is different from the default one - 3600 seconds. This feature outlines how long it will take for any new value you set for your record to take effect while the old value is still active.
