SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to employ a domain name for a certain service different from a website. By setting up a few SRV records, you’re able to use the domain address with different companies and direct it to a number of servers at the same time, every single server managing a separate service. You are able to specify the port number for the connection to each machine, so there will never be any interference. You can even set different priorities and weight for 2 records which are employed for the same service, but direct to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. With an SRV record you can use your domain address or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the actual software running on several machines with different companies. Which one a client of yours is going to use will depend on the priority and weight values that you've set.

SRV Records in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to create a new SRV record for any of the domain names that you host within a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them with ease through the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and minutes later any new record that you set up will be active. Hepsia includes a highly intuitive 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 unless of course the other company demands different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to stay active if you modify it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A brand new SRV record can be created within just seconds for every domain name hosted inside a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, which is used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts, includes a really easy-to-use interface, so you'll 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 through the DNS management tool, which is a part of Hepsia and once you select SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You need to type the service, port number and protocol info in addition to the record value in them and the new record will be live shortly after that. The priority and weight options may be set to every value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You'll be able to change each of the two if the other company has requested you to do so. Also, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which indicates the duration a record is going to remain functioning if changed or deleted, may also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
