How to Manage AAAA Records

Managing AAAA records at Hostinger

Updated over a week ago

An AAAA record, also known as quad A, is a type of DNS record used to map a domain name to an IPv6 address. It is similar to an A record, which maps a domain name to an IPv4 address, but AAAA records are specifically designed for IPv6 addresses.

If your domain is pointing to Hostinger by nameservers, you can add AAAA records using the DNS zone editor. For domains hosted at Hostinger, AAAA records are automatically created when applicable. Alternatively, you can check with your hosting provider for the exact values to use.

In case you have an AAAA record added and you may be asked to remove it by your hosting provider, or if you encounter SSL or CDN compatibility issues, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the Domains section of your hPanel and click on Manage next to your domain name

  2. Select DNS/Nameservers from the sidebar

  3. Scroll or use the search bar to find any existing AAAA records

  4. Take note of the current record values using a text editor - in case you need to re-add it later:

  5. Delete the AAAA record:

After making any changes to your DNS records, consider up to 24 hours for them to fully propagate.

If your domain is pointed elsewhere by nameservers, the DNS record needs to be set up at the platform to which your domain is pointed.
