SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which permits you to employ a domain name for a particular service different from a site. By setting up a couple of SRV records, you’ll be able to use the domain address with different companies and direct it to several servers at once, each and every server handling a different service. You can 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 used for the exact same service, but forward to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. With an SRV record you can employ 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 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 Hosting
You will be able to set up a completely new SRV record for any of the domain names you host within a shared web hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without any 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 highly 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 is going to be used for, the Internet protocol and the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, that you can leave except when the other provider requires different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to be active if you modify it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Creating a brand new SRV record for any domain address hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account on our end is going to be very easy and will require no more than a few clicks via a user-friendly interface. Using the DNS management tool within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can create any record you need and as soon as you choose SRV as the type, several more textboxes will appear on your screen. There, you'll have to type in the record value, the protocol, the service and also the port number and you will be all set. Optionally, if the other company requires it, you're also going to be able to set the weight and priority values in case they have to be different from the default value, which is 10. The range for these two options is from 1 to 100, so you will have a lot of possibilities if you use a lot of servers for a particular service. Also, you can specify how long the new SRV record will remain active if you erase it in the future by setting a TTL (Time To Live) value for it. By default, the TTL is 3600 seconds.
