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