SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to employ a domain name for a specific service different from a site. By setting up a few SRV records, you are able to use the domain name with different companies and forward it to several servers at the same time, every single server managing a different service. You'll be able to specify the port number for the connection to every single machine, so there won't be any interference. You can also set different priorities and weight for 2 records that are used for the very same service, but point 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 example, and have the specific software running on various machines with different providers. Which one a customer of yours is going to use is determined by the priority and weight values you have set.

SRV Records in Website Hosting

You will be able to create a completely new SRV record for any of the domains you host within a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them with ease via the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record which you create is going to be active. Hepsia includes a rather user-friendly interface and all it will take 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 plus the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you could 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 remain active if you change it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Through a semi-dedicated server solution from us, you will be able to employ our intuitive DNS administration tool, that is a part of the in-house developed Hepsia hosting CP. It's going to give you a very simple user interface to create a new record for each domain address hosted inside the account, so if you need to use a domain for any purpose, you could create a brand new SRV record with just a couple of mouse clicks. Via very simple text boxes, you'll have to enter the service, protocol and port number info, which you must have from the company offering you the service. Also, you're going to be able to select what priority and weight the record will have if you are planning to use a couple or more machines for the same service. The default value for them is 10, but you can set any other value between 1 and 100 if necessary. In addition, you 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 is going to be active in the global DNS system after you erase it or edit it.
