SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which permits you to employ a domain for a certain service different from an Internet site. By setting up a number of SRV records, you are able to use the domain with different companies and direct it to numerous servers at a time, every single server managing a separate service. You are able to specify the port number for the connection to every machine, so there will not be any interference. You could also set different priorities and weight for 2 records which are used for the same service, but forward to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. With an SRV record you can employ your domain or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the real software running on a number of machines with different companies. Which one a client of yours is going to use is determined by the priority and weight values which you have set.

SRV Records in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to set up a brand new SRV record for each of the domains which you host within a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you can manage them without any difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and just minutes later any new record you create is going to be active. Hepsia includes a rather intuitive interface and all it requires to create an SRV record is to fill in a couple of text boxes - the service the record is going to be used for, the Internet protocol and also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, that you can leave except when the other company requires different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number shows the time in seconds for the record to remain active in case you modify 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 our company, you are going to be able to benefit from the easy to navigate DNS administration tool, which is a part of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. It'll give you a quite simple user interface to create a new record for each and every domain hosted inside the account, so if you wish to use a domain for any purpose, you can create a completely new SRV record with a few clicks. Via basic text boxes, you'll have to type in the service, protocol and port number details, which you must have from the company providing you the service. In addition, you will be able to choose what priority and weight the record will have if you are planning to use a couple or more machines for the very same service. The standard value for them is 10, but you could set any other value between 1 and 100 if needed. Furthermore, you will 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 will be active in the global DNS system after you erase it or modify it.
