SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which permits you to employ a domain name for a specific service different from a website. By setting up a couple of SRV records, you are able to use the domain with different companies and forward it to several servers at the same time, every single server managing a different service. You could specify the port number for the connection to each machine, so there will not be any interference. You could also set different priorities and weight for 2 records which are employed for the 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 instance, and have the specific software running on a number of machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours is going to use depends on the priority and weight values that you've set.

SRV Records in Website Hosting

You are going to be able to create a completely new SRV record for any one of the domain names which you host in a shared web hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you can manage them without any difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia CP and just minutes later any new record you set up will be active. Hepsia features a rather user-friendly interface and all it will require 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 standard values, which you can leave unless of course the other provider demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to stay active if you change it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Creating a new SRV record for each and every domain name hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account on our end is going to be very easy and is going to take no more than a few mouse clicks via a user-friendly interface. Via the DNS administration tool inside your Hepsia hosting CP, you are able to create any record you need and once you select SRV as the type, several additional textboxes will appear on your screen. There, you will need to insert the record value, the service, the protocol along with the port number and you'll be ready. In addition, in case the other company requires it, you'll also be able to set the weight and priority values if they have to be different from the default value, which is 10. The range for these 2 options is from 1 to 100, so you will have a number of possibilities if you use many servers for a given service. You may also outline how long the new SRV record will remain live if you delete it in the future by setting a TTL (Time To Live) value for it. By default, the TTL is 3600 seconds.
