Pointing my DNS to a server that doesn't support IPv6

Linode Staff

I was wondering what I am supposed to do with the AAAA records when trying to point my DNS to a server that doesn't have IPv6 addresses. Any assistance would be helpful. Also, does this mean if a visitor was on IPv6 they wouldn't be able to access the site?

All Linode servers come with an IPv6 SLAAC address, I suggest checking out this awesome community post for more information on IPv6 with Linode. If you do not intend to use IPv6 then there is no need to enter anything in the AAAA record in DNS. If someone only has an IPV6 address they will not be able to access your site. However, most ISPs offer both IPv6 and IPv4.
