An AAAA record is an IP within the newly introduced IPv6 format and it comprises of 8 groups of hexadecimal numbers, unlike the IPv4 IPs, that include four groups of digits in between 1 and 255. An illustration of an IPv6 address is 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and in this format the number of IPs that can be created is many times larger than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Every single domain has its hosting server IP as a record and in essence, this unique record informs the domain name where the website for it can be found. Depending on the system that the service provider employs, the record is going to be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record enables you to host your Internet site with one company and your email messages with another, so if you choose to use such a redirection to point a domain name to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you will need to create an AAAA record for it.
