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 an Internet site. By setting up a few SRV records, you can use the domain with different providers and point it to a number of servers at a time, each and every server handling a different service. You could specify the port number for the connection to each and every machine, so there won't be any interference. You may as well set individual priorities and weight for 2 records that are used for the very same service, but forward to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. Using an SRV record you can use your domain or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the actual software running on a number of machines with different providers. Which one a client of yours will use is determined by the priority and weight values that you've set.
SRV Records in Cloud Hosting
You are going to be able to set up a brand new SRV record for each of the domains you host inside a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them without any difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and just minutes later any new record you set up will be active. Hepsia features a highly user-friendly interface and all it requires to create an SRV record is to fill in a couple of text boxes - the service the record will be used for, the Internet protocol and 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 requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to be active in case you modify it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
A completely new SRV record may be created in a matter of seconds for each domain address hosted within 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'll be able to set up any DNS record even if you have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you could set up records using the DNS administration tool, which is an element of Hepsia and once you pick SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You will need to type the service, port number and protocol info plus the record value in them and the new record is going to be working soon after that. The priority and weight options may be set to any value between 1 and 100, the default one being 10. You are able to change any one of the two in case the other provider has asked you to do so. Also, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which reveals the duration a record is going to remain working if edited or removed, can also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
