Why would you have 2 ip address values for an A record in Azure DNS for one website?

    Hi,

    look up round-robin DNS online. It is a cheap method for load balancing.

    For example, you got 2 IP addresses for website "test.com". When you try to access it, it will return IP1, and when I try to access it, it will return IP2.

    There are some interesting information in this post also. Feel free to take a look, maybe you'll find it useful:

    Hopefully I cleared it out a bit for you.

    Kind regards,
