SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which permits you to use a domain for a specific service different from an Internet site. By setting up a couple of SRV records, you will be able to use the domain with different companies and forward it to many servers at the same time, each server managing a separate service. You could specify the port number for the connection to each and every machine, so there won't be any interference. You could also set individual priorities and weight for two records that are employed for the same service, but forward to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having an SRV record you can employ your domain address or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the specific software running on a number of machines with different companies. Which one a client of yours will use depends on the priority and weight values that you have set.
SRV Records in Shared Hosting
You will be able to set up a completely new SRV record for any one of the domains that you host inside a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them effortlessly via the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record which you set up will be active. Hepsia comes with a highly user-friendly interface and all it will require to create an SRV record is to fill in 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 standard values, which you can leave except if 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 modify it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
A brand new SRV record could be created in a matter of seconds for every single domain address hosted inside a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, employed to control the semi-dedicated accounts, includes a very easy-to-use interface, so you will be able to create any DNS record even if you have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you are able to create records via the DNS administration tool, which is a part of Hepsia and once you choose SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You have to enter the service, port number and protocol information as well as the record value in them and the new record will be working shortly after that. The priority and weight options can be set to any value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You are able to adjust each of the two in case the other provider has required you to do so. In addition, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which reveals the duration a record is going to remain live if edited or erased, may also be modified from the default 3600 seconds.
