Edit an AAAA record

Edit your AAAA records in your DNS zone file if you need to make changes to the current settings. AAAA records point to 128 bit/IPv6 addresses, which are represented as eight groups of four hexadecimal digits.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy Domain Control Center. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
  2. Select your domain to access the Domain Settings page.
    select domain
  3. Select Manage DNS under Additional Settings.
  4. Select Edit next to the AAAA record you're editing.
  5. Edit the details for your AAAA record:
    • Name: The host name for the record. Type @ to put the AAAA record on your root domain, or enter a prefix, like mail.
    • Value: The IPv6 for your record. Typically, this will be the IP address of your hosting account. For example, 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:6a2e:0371:7234 is a valid IPv6 address.
    • TTL: How long the server should cache information. The default setting is 1 hour.
  6. Select Save to complete your changes.

Most DNS updates take effect within an hour, but could take up to 48 hours to update globally.
