SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to employ a domain name for a particular service different from a site. By creating a number of SRV records, you are able to use the domain address with different providers and forward it to numerous servers at once, each server handling a separate service. You are 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 employed for the exact same service, but forward to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. Using an SRV record you can use your domain address or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the specific software running on several machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours is going to use depends on the priority and weight values that you have set.

SRV Records in Shared Hosting

You're going to be able to create a completely new SRV record for any one of the domain names that you host inside a shared web hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you are able to manage them without difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and just minutes later any new record that you create is going to be active. Hepsia includes a very user-friendly 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 also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, that you can leave except when the other provider requires different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to be active if you modify it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A new SRV record can be created in a matter of seconds for every single domain name hosted within 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'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 could create records via the DNS administration tool, which is a part of Hepsia and once you choose SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You will need to input the service, port number and protocol details in addition to the record value in them and the new record will be working shortly after that. The priority and weight options can be set to any value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You can adjust any one of the two if the other provider has required you to do so. Additionally, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which shows the duration a record is going to remain working if changed or erased, can also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
