SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to use a domain name for a certain service different from a site. By setting up a couple of SRV records, you’re able to use the domain with different companies and forward it to several servers at once, every single server handling a separate service. You could specify the port number for the connection to each and every machine, so there will never be any interference. You could also set different priorities and weight for two records which are employed for the very 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 specific software running on several machines with different providers. Which one a customer of yours will use is determined by the priority and weight values that you've set.

SRV Records in Cloud Website Hosting

You are going to be able to create a new SRV record for any of the domains you host inside a shared website hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you are able to manage them with ease in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and minutes later any new record which you set up is going to be active. Hepsia comes with a rather 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 plus the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, which you can leave unless the other company demands different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number shows the time in seconds for the record to be active in case you modify it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

By using a semi-dedicated server solution from us, you will be able to use our easy to work with DNS management tool, which is a part of the in-house designed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It'll give you a simple interface to set up a new record for each and every domain hosted inside the account, so if you need to use a domain for any purpose, you can create a new SRV record with a few mouse clicks. Through basic text boxes, you will need to enter the service, protocol and port number details, which you ought to have from the company providing you the service. In addition, you're going to be able to select what priority and weight the record will have if you are going to use a couple or more machines for the exact same service. The default value for them is 10, but you may set any other value between 1 and 100 if needed. In addition, you'll have the option to change the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to a various different value - in this way setting the time this record is going to be active in the global DNS system after you erase it or modify it.
