For our domain we currently have both A and AAAA records configured.
We would like to switch the IP to which these records point to. For this purpose, we have purchased a 'dynamic IP' service from our hosting provider, which provides an additional IP address which is sort of an alias for a target IP address. The 'dynamic IP' is configured on the DNS records and is stable and the target IP can be changed rapidly. The goal of this is to be able to quickly switch out the target IP without incurring the lag that a change of IP in the DNS records would produce.
Thing is, this only works for IPv4 addresses, so with the IPv6 we still have the problem of the long update time should the change the target IP (e.g. because we're switching servers). Our hosting provider does not offer a similar solution for IPv6 addresses.
Our hosting provider suggested that we just delete the AAAA record, but is this a safe thing to do? Will all users find the service afterwards, even if their networks rely on IPv6 internally? We specifically configured the AAAA record in the past because some users hat problems accessing the site and our best guestimate was that it was due to a missing AAAA record (problem stopped after we configured the AAAA record).
