An AAAA record is an Internet protocol address within the recently released IPv6 format and it comprises of eight different sets of hexadecimal digits, unlike the IPv4 IPs, that include four groups of digits in between 1 and 255. A good example of an IPv6 address would be 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and with this format the number of IPs which can be created is many times greater than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Each and every domain name has its website hosting server Internet protocol address as a record and in essence, this record informs the domain name where the website for it is. Depending on the system the provider employs, the record is going to be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record allows you to host your Internet site with one company and your email messages with another, so if you decide to use this type of redirection to forward a domain to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you will need to create an AAAA record for it.
