What IP should I use under A Record?

Sorry for the rookie question.

I have been trying to figure out what IP I should put under the A Record. It ask me for a IPv4 address but I don’t know what to use…

I have been searching online for a couple of hours but couldn’t find the answer.

Here’s a quick explanation: If you want to host a website, for example, you have to put it on some kind of server. That might be a computer at home, a web hosting service or a dedicated server. Once you have something up and running (personally, I just rent a server or web hosting somewhere), you will usually get an IP assigned. In some cases, you have to ask the web hosting provider for this IP address (or “CNAME” address). They also provide you with instructions how you need to set it up in your DNS (that’s where the A, AAAA, CNAME, etc. records are set) most of the time.
