An AAAA record is an Internet protocol address within the freshly presented IPv6 format and it consists of 8 sets of hexadecimal digits, in contrast to the IPv4 IPs, which 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 total number of IPs that can be created is many times greater than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Each and every domain has its hosting server Internet protocol as a record and in essence, that record instructs the domain name where the Internet site for it is located. Depending on the system that the service provider uses, 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 choose to use this sort of redirection to forward a domain address to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you'll need to create an AAAA record for it.
