An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to forward a domain to a third-party server and use it for a service different from a site. This can be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so on. When an SRV record is created, 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. In addition, if you have numerous SRV records for the very same service, you could set different priorities and weights for every single one of them, in order to spread the load between several machines. Such a record will permit you to employ the same domain name or subdomains under it with different companies, so you're able to employ it for different purposes even if you are unable to get all of the services from one service provider.
