How do I create a new IPv6-record?

If your own server or external hosting is reachable through ipv6 you can create an IPV6 record in the DNS settings of your domain name. You can create the IPV6 record by following the steps below.

You'll find more information about AAAA records in this article.

  1. Log in to your TransIP control panel.
  2. Navigate to "Domain & Hosting".
  3. Click on your domain name in the left menu.
  4. Scroll down to "Advanced domain settings" (click Enable Advanced Settings if required).
  5. Navigate to "DNS" and fill the fields as follows:
    1. name: @ (or a subdomain, e.g. "www")
    2. ttl: 5 min
    3. Type: AAAA
    4. Value: The desired IPv6 Address
    5. Click on "save".

Step 1

Log in to your controlepaneel, navigate to the 'Domain & Hosting' tab and click your domain name on the left.


 

Step 2

Scroll down on the right side down to the 'Advanced domain settings' section and change your DNS records as desired. Use the following format for adding an IPv6 address:

  • name: @ (or a subdomain, e.g. 'www')
  • ttl: 5 min
  • Type: AAAA
  • Value: The desired IPv6 Address

If you see 'Domain settings' instead of 'Advanced domain settings', then first disable the option 'TransIP settings'.

Step 3

Click on 'Save' in the bottom right of your DNS settings.

It takes a maximum of 24 hours (usually less) before external systems have processed the changes and have taken affect globally. Unfortunately we have no influence on the time these changes take. See this link for more information.
