Adding AAAA Record under Linux 


AAAA records are much similar to the A Record, difference is just it store 128-bit Internet Protocol version 6 addresses that do not fit the standard A-record format.


It also indicates that the IPv6 address is four times the size of the IPv4 address. Since the IPv6 addresses which are stored in this type of records i.e AAAA will contain hexadecimal numbers separated by colons (:) at every segment, which contains four digits.


The order in which AAAA RRs are defined is not significant but it may be easier to define them in either an ascending or descending order of IP address since this can prevent unintentional duplicate definitions.



Use the below steps to add this AAAA Record in a quicker way:


  1. First you need to Login to our WHM Panel.
