SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which permits you to use a domain name for a certain service different from a website. By creating a few SRV records, you are able to use the domain with different providers and point it to several servers at once, every single server managing a separate service. You can specify the port number for the connection to each machine, so there won't be any interference. You can also set individual priorities and weight for two records which are used for the exact same service, but forward to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having an SRV record you can use your domain address or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the actual software running on various machines with different providers. Which one a client of yours is going to use depends on the priority and weight values that you have set.
SRV Records in Shared Hosting
You'll be able to create a brand new SRV record for each of the domain addresses you host in a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you can manage them without difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record which you create is going to be active. Hepsia includes a highly intuitive interface and all it takes to set up an SRV record is to fill in just a few 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, that you can leave except if the other provider needs different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to remain active when you change it or remove it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A brand new SRV record can be created within just seconds for every domain address hosted inside a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, employed to manage the semi-dedicated accounts, features a really easy-to-use interface, so you will 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 via the DNS administration tool, which is part of Hepsia and once you pick SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You have to type the service, port number and protocol info along with the record value in them and the new record will be active shortly after that. The priority and weight options can be set to every value between 1 and 100, the default one being 10. You could adjust any 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 is going to remain live if changed or erased, can also be modified from the default 3600 seconds.
