SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to employ a domain for a specific service different from an Internet site. By setting up a couple of SRV records, you’ll be able to use the domain name with different companies and point it to many servers at once, every single server managing a different service. You could specify the port number for the connection to each and every machine, so there will not be any interference. You may as well set different priorities and weight for two records that are employed for the same service, but point to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having an SRV record you can use your domain name or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the actual software running on a number of machines with different companies. Which one a client of yours is going to use depends on the priority and weight values that you've set.
SRV Records in Cloud Web Hosting
You'll be able to set up a completely new SRV record for any one of the domain names you host within a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without any difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record you create will be active. Hepsia features a highly 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 plus the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you can leave except if the other provider requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to stay active in case you edit it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
A brand new SRV record can be created within just seconds for each and every domain hosted inside a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, employed to manage the semi-dedicated accounts, includes a really easy-to-use interface, so you will be able to set up any DNS record even when you have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you could set up records using the DNS management tool, which is an element of Hepsia and once you pick SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You have to input the service, port number and protocol information as well as the record value in them and the new record is going to be operational right after that. The priority and weight options may be set to any value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You are able to adjust each of the two in case the other provider has requested you to do so. Additionally, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which reveals the duration a record is going to remain active if changed or deleted, can also be modified from the default 3600 seconds.
