Service Record (SRV Record)

Author: Anagha Ravi

A Service Record (SRV Record) is a variation of a domain name that allows customers to specify a host name (rather than IP address) for Bandwidth to use to point inbound traffic.

For example, instead of supplying, a customer could supply ‘voice.customer’ for Bandwidth to route voice traffic. The customer uses this as a proxy and could do more complex routing such as load balancing traffic or primary secondary failure (if doing via IP, the customer would have to supply each IP rather than the simple SRV).
