SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to employ a domain for a specific service different from an Internet site. By creating a number of SRV records, you can use the domain with different companies and forward it to several servers at once, each and every server managing a separate service. You'll be able to specify the port number for the connection to each machine, so there will not be any interference. You can also set individual priorities and weight for two records which are employed for the exact same service, but direct to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having an SRV record you can use your domain or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the actual software running on various machines with different providers. Which one a customer of yours is going to use will depend on the priority and weight values that you have set.
SRV Records in Cloud Hosting
You are going to be able to set up a new SRV record for any one of the domains which you host inside a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you can manage them effortlessly through the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and just minutes later any new record that you create will be active. Hepsia includes a rather intuitive interface and all it takes to set up an SRV record is to fill in just a few text boxes - the service the record will be used for, the Internet protocol and 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 is short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to be active if you modify it or remove it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Through a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you're going to be able to employ our easy to work with DNS management tool, that is a part of the in-house developed Hepsia website hosting CP. It will provide you with a quite simple interface to set up a new record for each and every domain hosted in the account, so if you want to use a domain for any purpose, you can create a brand new SRV record with a couple of clicks. Through basic text boxes, you'll have to type in the service, protocol and port number information, which you should have from the company providing you with the service. In addition, you're going to be able to choose what priority and weight the record will have if you're going to use a couple or more machines for the very same service. The default value for them is 10, but you could set any other value between 1 and 100 if required. In addition, you 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 active in the global DNS system after you erase it or change it.
