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 creating a couple of SRV records, you’ll be able to use the domain with different companies and forward it to many servers at once, each and every server managing a different service. You are able to specify the port number for the connection to each machine, so there will not be any interference. You may as well set individual priorities and weight for two records that are employed for the exact same service, but point 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 example, and have the real software running on several machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours is going to use will depend on the priority and weight values which you have set.

SRV Records in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to create a brand new SRV record for any of the domain addresses that you host in a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you are able to manage them effortlessly through the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and just minutes later any new record which you create is going to be active. Hepsia includes a highly user-friendly interface and all it takes to set up an SRV record is to fill in just a few 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 standard values, which you can leave unless of course 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 stay active if you change it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A brand new SRV record could be created within seconds for every domain address hosted inside a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, employed to control the semi-dedicated accounts, includes a rather easy-to-use interface, so you'll be able to set up any DNS record even though you may have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you are able to set up records with the DNS management tool, which is part of Hepsia and once you choose SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You have to enter the service, port number and protocol details as well as the record value in them and the new record is going to be working soon after that. The priority and weight options can be set to every value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You are able to change each of the two in case the other company has asked you to do so. Also, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which reveals the duration a record will remain live if changed or deleted, could also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
