Load Balancing Using Round Robin Records

You can list multiple ip addresses for a single name. This will automatically load balance traffic (round robin) for that name between the ip addresses listed. Load balancing is useful to distribute requests among multiple servers so no single server is overwhelmed. Dns servers return all listed ip addresses to the application (web browser, etc.) and the application randomly selects an ip address to use. Applications will generally use the same ip for the duration of a single session / connection. Some applications may also support automatic failover to one of the other ips (many web browsers support this).

How Long will the Change Take?

DNS changes are made immediately and in realtime across our nameservers. However, due to dns record caching by internet service providers, it may take a few hours for everyone to see the changes.
