With an AAAA record, you can point a domain to an IPv6-address. It is the same as an A record, but instead of pointing to an IPv4-address, it's used to point to an IPv6-address.
An AAAA record isn't very common, because most services still use IPv4 addresses, but as the use of Ipv6 grows, so will AAAA records.

Create an AAAA record on your domain
- Log into the one.com Control Panel.
- Click DNS settings on the Advanced settings tile.
- Go to DNS records.
- Under create new record, click AAAA.
- Enter the following details:
- Hostname: leave it empty to point the domain, or enter a subdomain.
- IP-address: where you want to point to.
- TTL: optional. If you leave it empty, it will use the default time of 3600 seconds.
- Click Create record to save your settings.
Example: In the screenshot below we have pointed www.one-example.net to the IP-address 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334. The TTL is left empty, meaning it is set to 3600, which means the server will cache this setting for one hour.
