An AAAA record is an Internet protocol address within the freshly launched IPv6 format and it comprises of 8 sets of hexadecimal digits, in contrast to the IPv4 IPs, which feature four sets of numbers in between 1 and 255. An illustration of an IPv6 address is 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and with this format the number of IPs that can be created is many times higher 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. Depending on the system which the provider employs, the record will be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record enables you to host your website with one company and your email messages with another, so if you decide to use this sort of redirection to forward a domain address to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you'll have to set up an AAAA record for it.
