SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to use a domain for a certain service different from a website. By setting up a few SRV records, you’re able to use the domain address with different companies and forward it to a number of servers at the same time, each and every server managing a different service. You can specify the port number for the connection to each machine, so there will never be any interference. You can even set individual priorities and weight for two records which are employed for the exact same service, but point 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 real software running on a number of 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 Shared Website Hosting
You are going to be able to set up a brand new SRV record for any of the domains you host in a shared web hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you can manage them without any difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and just minutes later any new record you set up will be active. Hepsia features a really user-friendly interface and all it requires to create 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 except if the other company requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number shows the time in seconds for the record to remain active when you modify it or erase it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A brand new SRV record may be created within just seconds for each and every domain address hosted in a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts, includes a very easy-to-use interface, so you'll be able to create any DNS record even if you have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you may set up records through the DNS management tool, which is an element of Hepsia and once you choose SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You have to enter the service, port number and protocol information along with the record value in them and the new record is going to be live right after that. The priority and weight options could be set to any value between 1 and 100, the default one being 10. You could adjust each of the two in case the other provider has requested you to do so. Furthermore, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which shows the duration a record is going to remain live if changed or removed, could also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
