SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to use a domain name for a particular service different from a site. By setting up a number of SRV records, you’ll be able to use the domain name with different providers and forward it to several servers at the same time, every single server handling a separate service. You are able to specify the port number for the connection to every single machine, so there will never be any interference. You may as well set different priorities and weight for 2 records that are employed for the same service, but point to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. Using 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 actual software running on various machines with different companies. Which one a client of yours is going to use depends on the priority and weight values you have set.
SRV Records in Shared Hosting
You will be able to create a brand new SRV record for each of the domain addresses you host in a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you can manage them without any difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record you create will be active. Hepsia features a highly intuitive interface and all it takes 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 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 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 edit it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you're going to be able to take advantage of the easy to navigate DNS administration tool, which is a part of the in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP. It is going to offer you a simple user interface to create a new record for each domain address hosted in the account, so if you need to use a domain address for any purpose, you can set up a brand new SRV record with just a few clicks. Through simple text boxes, you'll need to type in the service, protocol and port number information, which you must have from the company offering you the service. Additionally, you're going to be able to select what priority and weight the record will have if you intend to use a couple or more machines for the same service. The default value for them is 10, but you may set any other value between 1 and 100 if needed. Additionally, you will have the option to adjust the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to a various different value - this way setting the time this record will be active in the global DNS system after you delete it or change it.
