AAAA record facts for kids
In the Domain Name System, an AAAA record is something that changes a domain name into a 128-bit IP address (or IPv6 address). A domain can have many AAAA records, for example, the domain example.com could have an AAAA record for www.example.com that points to the IP 2001:0db8:0000:0000:0000:0000:3257:9652, and another AAAA record for mail.example.com that points to the IP 2001:0db8:0000:0000:0000:0000:3257:9653.
