An AAAA record is an IP within the freshly presented IPv6 format and it consists of 8 groups of hexadecimal digits, as opposed to the IPv4 IPs, which feature 4 sets of digits in between 1 and 255. An example of an IPv6 address is 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and in this format the amount of IPs that can be created is many times greater than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Every domain name has its web hosting server Internet protocol address as a record and in essence, this unique record informs the domain address where the Internet site for it can be found. Depending on the system that the company uses, 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 emails with another, so if you choose to use such a redirection to point a domain to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you will have to create an AAAA record for it.
