AAAA Records in Shared Hosting
If you use a service with a third-party provider and you need to set up an AAAA record to direct a domain address or a subdomain to their system, you'll be able to do that with only a couple of clicks through the Hepsia CP, which comes with all of our shared hosting packages. As soon as you sign in, you have to navigate to the DNS Records section in which you will find all records for any domain address or subdomain hosted inside the account. Setting up a new record is as basic as clicking on a button, choosing the type from a drop-down menu, which will be AAAA in this case, and then entering the value, or the actual IPv6 address, within a text box. As an additional option you could modify the TTL value (Time To Live), which specifies how long the record is going to be functioning after you modify it or erase it in the future. The new AAAA record is going to be working in no more than an hour and will propagate around the world a few hours later, so the hostname for which you have created it will start directing to the new server.
AAAA Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account from our company and you have to create an AAAA record for a domain you have hosted in it or a subdomain you have set up, it will take you only a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel to achieve that. In case you have never had a web hosting account before, you won't face any issues because you will use a very simple and intuitive interface. All DNS records for your domain names are going to be listed in a section of the CP with the exact same name, so once you go there, you will notice all records which have been created automatically or manually and you are going to be able to set up a new one by simply clicking on the corresponding button. A little pop-up will appear, so with just a couple of mouse clicks you can choose the type of record you need and for which Internet domain or subdomain it's going to be created. Next, just paste the IPv6 address in a text box, save the modification and an hour later the new AAAA record is going to be fully active. As an optional setting, you may choose the length of time this record shall be active after you edit it or remove it in the future. This is the so-called TTL, or Time To Live value of the record, which you can change from the default 3600 seconds when the other provider requires it.
