SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to employ a domain name for a certain service different from a website. By setting up a few SRV records, you are able to use the domain with different providers and point it to numerous servers at the same time, every single server managing a different 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 individual priorities and weight for two records that are employed for the exact same service, but direct to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having an SRV record you can employ your domain name or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the actual software running on several 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 Website Hosting
You're going to be able to create a completely new SRV record for any one of the domain addresses you host inside 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’ll be able to manage them with ease through the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and minutes later any new record that you set up will be active. Hepsia includes a very intuitive 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 will be used for, the Internet protocol plus the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, that you can leave except when the other provider demands different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to be active if you edit it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using a semi-dedicated server solution from us, you'll be able to use our intuitive DNS management tool, which is a part of the in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It will offer you a simple user interface to create a new record for each and every domain hosted within the account, so if you would like to use a domain for any purpose, you can set up a completely new SRV record with a few mouse clicks. Through simple text boxes, you'll have to enter the service, protocol and port number info, which you must have from the company providing you the service. Also, you are going to be able to select what priority and weight the record will have if you're planning to use a couple or more machines for the exact same service. The standard value for them is 10, but you could set any other value between 1 and 100 if necessary. Additionally, you will have the option to adjust the TTL value from the standard 3600 seconds to a various different value - this way setting the time this record is going to be live in the global DNS system after you remove it or modify it.
