So it looks like your home internet connection support IPv6, and so does your site. There is nothing weird in showing this address in your ACP, this address is he replacement for the old one you saw (Which was a IPv4 address)

You should upgrade your php version, and yes that is an ipv6 address... I wonder if it’s possible to configure ipv6 for a BT Hub 5 :P

BT Hub 5 is fully IPv6 compatible and has been since early 2017.
