SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to use a domain for a particular service different from an Internet site. By setting up a few SRV records, you can use the domain address with different providers and point it to many servers at a time, each and every server handling a separate service. You'll be able to specify the port number for the connection to each machine, so there won't be any interference. You can even set different priorities and weight for two records which are used for the very same service, but point 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 instance, and have the specific software running on several machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours will use will depend on the priority and weight values you have set.
SRV Records in Cloud Hosting
You're going to be able to set up a new SRV record for any of the domain names which you host within a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them effortlessly in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record you set up will be active. Hepsia includes a rather intuitive interface and all it will require to set up an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record is going to be used for, the Internet protocol as well as the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, which 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 be active if you modify it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you'll be able to take advantage of the easy to work with DNS management tool, that is a part of the in-house designed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It will offer you a simple user interface to set up a new record for any domain address hosted in the account, so if you need to use a domain name for any purpose, you could create a new SRV record with a couple of mouse clicks. Using simple text boxes, you will need to enter the service, protocol and port number info, which you should have from the company providing you the service. Also, you will be able to select what priority and weight the record will have if you are going to use a couple or more machines for the exact same service. The default value for them is 10, but you could set any other value between 1 and 100 if needed. In addition, you'll have the option to change the TTL value from the standard 3600 seconds to any other value - thus setting the time this record is going to be live in the global DNS system after you remove it or change it.
