An AAAA record is an IP address within the freshly presented IPv6 format and it comprises of 8 groups of hexadecimal digits, as opposed to the IPv4 IPs, that include 4 sets of numbers 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 that may be created is many times bigger than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Each and every domain has its hosting server IP address as a record and in essence, this unique record tells the domain name where the website for it is. 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 site with one provider and your emails with another, so if you decide to use this type of redirection to forward a domain address to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you will have to create an AAAA record for it.
