SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to employ a domain for a particular service different from an Internet site. By setting up a number of SRV records, you’re able to use the domain address with different providers and direct it to many servers at once, each and every server managing a separate service. You are able to specify the port number for the connection to each and every machine, so there won't be any interference. You may as well set individual priorities and weight for 2 records that are employed for the very same service, but forward to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. With an SRV record you can employ your domain or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the real software running on a number of machines with different providers. Which one a customer of yours will use will depend on the priority and weight values that you've set.

SRV Records in Shared Web Hosting

You'll be able to create a completely new SRV record for any one of the domains you host within a shared web hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and just minutes later any new record you set up will be active. Hepsia comes with a really user-friendly interface and all it requires to create an SRV record is to fill in just a few text boxes - the service the record is going to be used for, the Internet protocol and also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, that you can leave unless of course 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 stay active in case you change it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

A brand new SRV record could be created within just seconds for each domain address hosted inside a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts, comes with a very easy-to-use interface, so you will be able to set up any DNS record even if you have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you are able to create records using the DNS administration tool, which is part of Hepsia and once you select SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You need to input the service, port number and protocol information along with the record value in them and the new record will be working soon after that. The priority and weight options could be set to every value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You can change any of the two if the other provider has asked you to do so. In addition, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which reveals the duration a record will remain functioning if changed or erased, can also be modified from the default 3600 seconds.
