An AAAA record is an IP within the recently presented IPv6 format and it is made up of 8 different groups of hexadecimal digits, as opposed to the IPv4 IPs, which include 4 groups of digits between 1 and 255. An example of an IPv6 address would be 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and in this format the total number of IPs that can be created is many times larger than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Every domain has its website hosting server Internet protocol address as a record and in essence, this record instructs the domain where the Internet site for it is. Depending on the system the service provider employs, the record is going to be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record permits you to host your website with one company and your e-mails with another, so if you decide to use this kind of redirection to point a domain address to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you will need to set up an AAAA record for it.
