SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to employ a domain name for a specific service different from a website. By setting up a few SRV records, you will be able to use the domain with different providers and direct it to a number of servers at a time, each and every server handling a separate service. You can specify the port number for the connection to every machine, so there will never be any interference. You can also set individual priorities and weight for two records which are employed for the very same service, but direct to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having an SRV record you can use your domain or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the real software running on various machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours is going to use is determined by the priority and weight values you have set.
SRV Records in Website Hosting
You are going to be able to set up a new SRV record for each of the domain addresses that 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’ll be able to manage them with ease through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record you create will be active. Hepsia includes a very intuitive interface and all it will take to create an SRV record is to fill in just 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 standard values, which you could leave except if the other provider requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number shows the time in seconds for the record to remain active when you edit it or erase it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A new SRV record can be created in a matter of seconds for each domain address hosted inside a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts, comes with a really easy-to-use interface, so you'll be able to create any DNS record although you may have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you'll be able to create records through the DNS administration tool, which is a part of Hepsia and once you pick SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You will need to input the service, port number and protocol details plus the record value in them and the new record is going to be working shortly after that. The priority and weight options can be set to every value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You'll be able to change any one of the two if the other provider has required you to do so. Also, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which reveals the duration a record will remain active if changed or deleted, can also be modified from the default 3600 seconds.
