An AAAA record is an Internet protocol address within the recently launched IPv6 format and it consists of 8 sets of hexadecimal digits, unlike the IPv4 IPs, that include 4 groups of digits between 1 and 255. An example of an IPv6 address is 3014:0d43:23a3:2354:1320:8f3b:2635:3254 and in this format the number of IPs that can be created is many times larger 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 where the Internet site for it can be found. Depending on the system which the service provider employs, the record is going to be called A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6). Changing this record will allow you to host your Internet site with one provider and your e-mails with another, so if you decide to use such a redirection to point a domain name to a server that uses an IPv6 address, you will have to set up an AAAA record for it.
