Does DNS Support IPv6?

DNS can translate domain names to both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

To translate a domain name to an IPv4 address, add an A record set. To translate a domain name to an IPv6 address, add an AAAA record set.

If your domain name is example.com, you can add the following record sets.

Huawei Cloud DNS itself is also available over either IPv4 or IPv6. Huawei Cloud provides the following DNS servers: ns1.huaweicloud-dns.com, ns1.huaweicloud-dns.cn, ns1.huaweicloud-dns.net, and ns1.huaweicloud-dns.org

Local DNS servers, either supporting IPv4 or IPv6 or both, can send DNS queries to Huawei Cloud DNS servers.
