SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to use a domain for a certain service different from an Internet site. By creating a couple of SRV records, you’ll be able to use the domain with different companies and direct it to many servers at once, each and every server managing a separate service. You can specify the port number for the connection to every single machine, so there will not be any interference. You can even set different priorities and weight for 2 records which are used for the very same service, but point to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. With an SRV record you can employ your domain address or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the real software running on a number of machines with different providers. Which one a client of yours will use will depend on the priority and weight values you have set.
SRV Records in Web Hosting
You're going to be able to set up a completely new SRV record for any of the domains that you host within a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you can manage them effortlessly in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and minutes later any new record you create is going to be active. Hepsia includes a rather intuitive interface and all it will take to set up an SRV record is to fill in a couple of text boxes - the service the record is going to 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 could leave except when the other provider needs different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to be active if you change it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A completely new SRV record may be created within seconds for each and every domain name hosted in a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to handle the semi-dedicated accounts, comes with a rather easy-to-use interface, so you will be able to create any DNS record even when you have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you may set up records via the DNS management tool, which is part of Hepsia and once you pick SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You have to type the service, port number and protocol info plus the record value in them and the new record is going to be operational right after that. The priority and weight options can be set to any value between 1 and 100, the default one being 10. You can adjust each of the two if the other company has requested you to do so. In addition, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which shows the duration a record is going to remain live if edited or erased, may also be modified from the default 3600 seconds.
