AAAA records causing an error

Hi there

We use Flywheel for hosting and usually, everything is just fine, but occasionally we get some 500 errors which they tell us is because there are some AAAA records - see below

I can’t see where they are coming from as they are not on Cloudflare and the Nameservers are pointed here



Well, that domain is using Cloudflare and these records are proxied, which means they will resolve to the proxies, which have IPv6 addresses by default. If you are on a paid plan you can disable IPv6, otherwise you can’t.

That being said, you really should not get any errors because of AAAA addresses and if you do, your provider better fixes their system. If they throw the error because they can’t handle client IPv6 addresses, then you can enable pseudo IPv4 at
