An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to forward a domain to a third-party server and employ it for a service different from an Internet site. This may be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so forth. When an SRV record is set up, you can specify an Internet Protocol that the domain address will use and the port, which is to be employed to connect to the remote server. Moreover, if you have numerous SRV records for the very same service, you could set individual priorities and weights for every one of them, so you're able to send out the load between many machines. Such a record allows you to employ the same domain or subdomains under it with different companies, so you're able to employ it for various purposes even if you cannot get all the services from one service provider.
