AAAA records store 128-bit Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) addresses that do not fit the standard A-record format. For example, 2001:0db8::85a3:0000:0000:6a2e:0371:7234 is a valid 128-bit/IPv6 address. It maps the host name to an address associated with a domain name and specifies that AAAA records must be processed.

 Note: If your domain is registered at another company, see the Domains registered at another company section below for instructions.
