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 a website. 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 are able to specify an Internet Protocol the domain address will use and the port, which is to be employed to connect to the remote server. Furthermore, if you have several SRV records for the same service, you could set different priorities and weights for each and every one of them, so you can spread the load between many machines. Such a record will permit you to employ the same domain name or subdomains under it with different providers, so you can employ it for different purposes even if you can't get all the services from just one service provider.
