We can define multiple values. Multiple addresses instead of:
we can have: www.example.com A 18.104.22.168
www.example.com. A 22.214.171.124
www.example.com. A 126.96.36.199 This is useful if we have two web servers, and want to split the load between them. Instead of always replying with 188.8.131.52 as the answer for www.example.com, the server can now alternate between 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11. This is called round-robin load balancing. Each answer will be given out half of the time. Limitations of
