An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to redirect a domain name to a third-party server and employ it for a service different from a site. This could be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and many others. When an SRV record is created, you are able to specify an Internet Protocol the domain address will use and the port, which is to be used to connect to the remote server. Also, in case you have many SRV records for the exact same service, you'll be able to set various priorities and weights for every one of them, so 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 providers, so you can employ it for various purposes even if you can't get all services from just one service provider.
