Where do I find my IP4V and IPv6 addresses if no dns record

Where do I find my IP4V and IPv6 addresses if they aren’t in my dns record. im trying to create an A record with them

This information is typically provided by your webhost, although it can vary depending on the type of service that you are creating a record for. As a general rule, you will obtain the address from whoever provides the service that you are trying to access.

Thank you for your reply, is Cloudflare my web host if I bought the domain through them. Im simply trying to have the domain I purchased forward to another url with a page rule, but when you type in the domain it says server not available, so I thought maybe a cname record would work which it does not, then heard about ipv4 and ipv5 and thought maybe they would work?

No. If you are not hosting a site somewhere, you have no webhost.

I prefer using the new redirect rules instead of a page rule.

When using an originless hostname, I like to create only a AAAA record using the discard prefix address of 100::. Make sure that it is :orange: proxied.


Thank you for the info, so I went ahead with # 4 and its not working

You appear to have forgotten a critical step.

I see no AAAA record in your screenshot. You need a :orange: proxied hostname name in order for traffic to reach your redirect.

Thank you so much for your help. I added the AAAA record and it’s very weird:

  1. example.com” URL in safari on my mobile device works, but “www.example.com” does not.
  2. example.com” does not work safari on the device im trying to work on Mac OS, it says the server cannot be found. Also “www.example.com” does not work citing “the server cannot be found”
  3. example.com” works on chrome internet browser on Mac, but “www.example.com” does not work on it and displays this error " This site can’t be reached

Check if there is a typo in www.example.com.


Did you create a similar :orange: proxied DNS AAAA record for www? If you did not, that explains why it is not found.

Caching is likely to blame for the discrepancy you see between your mobile network and the Mac.

If you are using DoH in Chrome to access external resolvers outside your home network, that could explain the difference between Safari and Chrome.

If your home network DNS resolver is your WiFi, you may want to reboot it to clear its cache.

Thank you so much, I have been trying to figure this out for a month. Bless you man.
