An SRV record, which stands for Service record, is a DNS entry that is used to outline the servers that run a particular service for a domain. Basically, you’ll be able to use your Internet domain not just for an Internet site, but also for an instant messaging server, a video streaming host or even a Voice-Over-IP server, as an example, while you still have an Internet site with it. When you create the SRV record, you may choose what Internet Protocol it will employ, on which port the connection to the specific server will be established plus the priority and the weight of the record provided that there are several SRV records for the exact same service. The second option allows you to use different machines for load balancing and redundancy. Using this kind of DNS records, you may use the same domain address for various purposes and even with different providers if the same one can't provide all services that you need.
