Creating or Updating an AAAA Record

AAAA records store a 128-bit Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) address. These IPv6 does not fit the standard A record format. Example: 2001:0db8::85a3:0000:0000:6a2e:0371:7234 is a valid 128-bit/IPv6 address. It maps the hostname to an address associated with a domain name and specifies that AAAA records must be processed.

To Create or Update an AAAA Record for Your Domain

  1. Log in to your Account Manager.
  2. In the My Products section, click Domain Manager.
  3. Click the domain name for which you want to create a AAAA record.
  4. In the Total DNS section, click Total DNS Control.
  5. Click Add New AAAA Record or click  for an existing record you want to edit.
  6. Complete the following:
    • Host Name — The host name or domain name linked to this AAAA record
    • Points to IPv6 Address — The 128-bit address
    • TTL — How long the server should cache the information
  7. Click OK.
