An AAAA record is an IP within the freshly launched IPv6 format and it is comprised of 8 groups of hexadecimal digits, unlike the IPv4 IPs, which include four sets of numbers between 1 and 255. An example of an IPv6 address is 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and in this format the sheer number of IPs which can be created is many times greater than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Each and every domain has its hosting server IP as a record and in essence, that record instructs the domain name where the website for it is. Depending on the system the company uses, the record is going to be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record permits you to host your Internet site with one provider and your e-mails with a different one, so if you choose to use this type of redirection to point a domain name to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you will need to create an AAAA record for it.
