Thanks Warren.
I am looking DNS RR distribution. (DNS Round Robin Load distribution).

Round robin DNS is often used to load balance requests between a number of Web
servers <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_server>. For example, a company
has one domain name and three identical copies of the same web site
residing on three servers with three different IP addresses. When one user
accesses the home page it will be sent to the first IP address. The second
user who accesses the home page will be sent to the next IP address, and
the third user will be sent to the third IP address. In each case, once the
IP address is given out, it goes to the end of the list. The fourth user,
therefore, will be sent to the first IP address, and so forth.
