What is an AAAA record?

Last updated: 14/01/2016

An AAAA DNS record (address record) points a hostname to an IPv6 address, in the same way an A DNS record translates a hostname to an IPv4 address.

You can for example create an AAAA record for hostname "www" which points to IP address 2a00:1140:0200:0000::17, so www.yourdomainname.be points to the server at IPv6 address 2a00:1140:0200:0000::17.

Kinamo's network is fully IPv6 compliant, and there's no additional configuration involved to make your website reachable through IPv6.
