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