SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to employ a domain for a specific service different from a site. By setting up a few SRV records, you’re able to use the domain with different providers and point it to a number of servers at once, each server managing a separate service. You could specify the port number for the connection to every machine, so there will not be any interference. You can also set different priorities and weight for 2 records which are used for the exact same service, but point to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. With an SRV record you can employ your domain name or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the real software running on several machines with different providers. 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 are going to be able to create a brand new SRV record for any of the domain names which you host in a shared web hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them without difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record you set up will be active. Hepsia includes a really intuitive interface and all it will require to create an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record will 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 unless the other company demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to remain active in case you edit it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
A new SRV record may be created in a matter of seconds for any domain hosted within a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts, features a rather easy-to-use interface, so you will 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'll be able to set up records with the DNS administration tool, which is part of Hepsia and once you pick SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You will need to input the service, port number and protocol details in addition to the record value in them and the new record will be active soon after that. The priority and weight options can be set to any value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You'll be able to adjust each of the two in case the other company has required you to do so. Furthermore, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which indicates the duration a record will remain working if edited or deleted, could also be modified from the default 3600 seconds.
