Do I need to configure AAAA records?
I am new to setting up a Linux Web Server and am following the guide called:
I am good on with all the steps until I get to “Step Three—Configure your Domain”.
I have added the A records and can get to my domain by just typing in “http://example.com”. Of course, I subsitute example with my domain name, etc…
My problem starts when I get to the AAAA records. I know almost nothing about IPv6. Do I even need to mess with it? How do I get the IPV6 address of my VPS ? I have tried typing into the console “ip -6 addr showip -6 addr show” but the data I get back confuses me and I am not sure which is the ipv6 address.
I think I am good with the CNAME and MX records, but I haven’t tried to configure them yet.
