SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to employ a domain name for a specific service different from an Internet site. By setting up a few SRV records, you can use the domain name with different providers and point it to many servers at the same time, each and every server handling a separate service. You are able to specify the port number for the connection to each and every machine, so there will not be any interference. You can even set individual priorities and weight for two records that are employed for the same service, but direct to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. With an SRV record you can use your domain name or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the real software running on a number of machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours is going to use will depend on the priority and weight values you have set.
SRV Records in Shared Website Hosting
You're going to be able to create a brand new SRV record for any one of the domains that you host inside a shared website hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Given that 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 minutes later any new record that you set up is going to be active. Hepsia features a really intuitive interface and all it will require to create an SRV record is to fill in just a few 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, which you could leave unless the other provider requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to remain active if you edit it or erase it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to use our user-friendly DNS administration tool, which is a part of the in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It will offer you a simple interface to create a new record for each domain name hosted in the account, so if you would like to use a domain name for any purpose, you can create a brand new SRV record with a few mouse clicks. Via simple text boxes, you'll need to type in the service, protocol and port number details, which you should have from the company providing you the service. Also, you're going to be able to choose what priority and weight the record will have if you're planning to use a couple or more machines for the same service. The standard value for them is 10, but you could set any other value between 1 and 100 when necessary. Moreover, you'll have the option to change the TTL value from the standard 3600 seconds to a various different value - this way setting the time this record is going to be active in the global DNS system after you erase it or change it.
