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 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 will be used to connect to the remote server. Also, if you have numerous SRV records for the very same service, you can set individual priorities and weights for each one of them, so that you can distribute the load between many machines. Such a record will permit you to employ the same domain or subdomains under it with different companies, so you could employ it for many purposes even if you are unable to get all services from one provider.
