What is a "AAAA" record?
An AAAA record (or quad-A record) represents an IPv6 address. The format for an AAAA record is very similar to an A record.
- Name - The host name of the record (e.g. www)
- TTL - The time of live, if not specified the default for the zone will be used
- IPv6 Address - Indicates the IPv6 address which this record is mapped to.
IPv6 addresses use eight groups of four hexidecimal digits, separated by colons.
For example: 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334
