SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to use a domain for a particular service different from an Internet site. By creating a couple of SRV records, you’ll be able to use the domain address with different providers and point it to many servers simultaneously, each server managing a different service. You'll be able to specify the port number for the connection to every single machine, so there won't be any interference. You may as well set individual priorities and weight for 2 records that are used for the same service, but direct to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having an SRV record you can employ your domain address or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the specific software running on a number of 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 Cloud Hosting

You will be able to set up a completely new SRV record for each of the domains that you host in a shared website hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them effortlessly in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record which you create will be active. Hepsia features a rather intuitive interface and all it requires to create an SRV record is to fill in just a few 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 standard values, which you could leave unless of course the other company requires different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to remain active in case you change it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server solution from us, you are going to be able to use the easy to work with DNS administration tool, that is a part of the in-house designed Hepsia hosting CP. It will give you a quite simple interface to set up a new record for each and every domain address hosted inside the account, so if you wish to use a domain for any purpose, you could create a new SRV record with only a few clicks. Using basic text boxes, you'll have to type in the service, protocol and port number info, which you ought to have from the company providing you with the service. In addition, you'll 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 standard value for them is 10, but you could set any other value between 1 and 100 if necessary. Furthermore, you will have the option to adjust the TTL value from the standard 3600 seconds to a various different value - thus setting the time this record is going to be live in the global DNS system after you delete it or modify it.
