An AAAA record is an IP in the freshly presented IPv6 format and it consists of 8 groups of hexadecimal digits, in contrast to the IPv4 IPs, which include four sets of digits between 1 and 255. A good example of an IPv6 address is 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and in this format the total number of IPs which can be created is many times higher than the number of the IPv4 addresses. Each domain has its web hosting server Internet protocol as a record and in essence, this record informs the domain name where the Internet site for it is located. Depending on the system that the service provider employs, the record will be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record allows you to host your website with one company and your emails with another, so if you choose to use this sort of redirection to forward a domain name to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you will have to create an AAAA record for it.
