An SRV record is a DNS record, which 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 on. When an SRV record is created, you can specify an Internet Protocol which the domain name will use and the port, which will be employed to connect to the remote server. Additionally, provided that you have several SRV records for the exact same service, you could set individual priorities and weights for each and every one of them, so that you can send out the load between several machines. Such a record will permit you to use the same domain or subdomains under it with different companies, so you could employ it for various purposes even if you are unable to get all of the services from just one provider.
