SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to employ a domain name for a particular service different from an Internet site. By setting up a few SRV records, you can use the domain address with different providers and direct it to several servers at once, each server handling a different service. You can specify the port number for the connection to each and every machine, so there won't be any interference. You can even set different priorities and weight for 2 records which are employed for the very same service, but direct to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. With an SRV record you can use your domain or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the specific software running on various machines with different companies. Which one a client of yours is going to use depends on the priority and weight values which you have set.
SRV Records in Shared Hosting
You're going to be able to create a new SRV record for any one of the domain addresses which you host within a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them effortlessly via the respective section of your Hepsia CP and just minutes later any new record you create will be active. Hepsia features a rather intuitive interface and all it will require to create an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record will be used for, the Internet protocol as well as the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you can leave except if the other company requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to stay active when you edit it or erase it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
By using a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to take advantage of our user-friendly DNS administration tool, that is a part of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. It will provide you with a simple interface to create a new record for any domain name hosted within the account, so if you would like to use a domain for any purpose, you can create a new SRV record with only a few clicks. Through very simple text boxes, you'll need to type in the service, protocol and port number information, which you should have from the company providing you the service. Moreover, you're going to be able to choose what priority and weight the record will have if you are planning to use a couple or more machines for the very same service. The standard value for them is 10, but you can set any other value between 1 and 100 when necessary. Moreover, you have the option to change the TTL value from the standard 3600 seconds to a various different value - in this way setting the time this record is going to be live in the global DNS system after you delete it or modify it.
