SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which permits you to use a domain name for a specific service different from a website. By creating a few SRV records, you’re able to use the domain name with different companies and forward it to several servers simultaneously, every single server managing a different service. You are able to specify the port number for the connection to every single machine, so there will not be any interference. You may as well set individual priorities and weight for 2 records which are employed for the very same service, but forward to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. Using an SRV record you can use your domain address or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the actual software running on various machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours is going to use will depend on the priority and weight values that you've set.

SRV Records in Website Hosting

You are going to be able to create a new SRV record for each of the domain names that you host within a shared website hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without any difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and just minutes later any new record that you set up is going to be active. Hepsia includes a very user-friendly interface and all it requires to set up an SRV record is to fill in a couple of 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 default values, which you could leave unless the other company needs different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to remain active when you change it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Creating a completely new SRV record for any domain name hosted within a semi-dedicated server account on our end will be very easy and will require no more than just a few mouse clicks via a user-friendly interface. Through the DNS management tool in your Hepsia website hosting CP, you can create any record that you need and once you select SRV as the type, several additional textboxes will appear on your screen. There, you'll need to enter the record value, the protocol, the service and the port number and you'll be ready. Additionally, if the other service provider requires it, you'll also be able to set the weight and priority values in case they have to be different from the default value, which is 10. The range for those two options is from 1 to 100, so you have a lot of possibilities if you use a lot of servers for a particular service. You can also define how long the new SRV record will remain active if you delete it in the future by setting a TTL (Time To Live) value for it. By default, the TTL is 3600 seconds.
