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 an Internet site. By setting up a number of SRV records, you can use the domain name with different providers and direct it to numerous servers at the same time, every single server handling a different service. You are able to specify the port number for the connection to each machine, so there will never be any interference. You can also set different priorities and weight for 2 records that are used for the same service, but forward to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. Using an SRV record you can employ your domain name or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the actual software running on a number of machines with different providers. Which one a client of yours is going to use depends on the priority and weight values that you've set.
SRV Records in Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to set up a brand new SRV record for any of the domain addresses that you host within a shared website hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them with ease via the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record you set up is going to be active. Hepsia features a highly intuitive interface and all it requires to set up an SRV record is to fill in a few 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 when the other provider requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to be active if you modify it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
By using a semi-dedicated server package from us, you're going to be able to take advantage of the intuitive DNS management tool, that is a part of the in-house designed Hepsia web hosting CP. It is going to offer you a rather simple user interface to set up a new record for every single domain hosted in the account, so if you would like to use a domain name for any purpose, you could create a new SRV record with only a few clicks. Via simple text boxes, you'll have to enter the service, protocol and port number information, which you ought to have from the company offering you the service. Furthermore, you're going to be able to choose 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 could set any other value between 1 and 100 if necessary. In addition, you are going to have the option to adjust the TTL value from the standard 3600 seconds to a various different value - thus setting the time this record will be live in the global DNS system after you erase it or edit it.
