SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which permits you to employ a domain for a certain service different from a website. By creating a few SRV records, you are able to use the domain name with different providers and direct it to a number of servers at the same time, every single server handling a separate service. You can specify the port number for the connection to each machine, so there will not be any interference. You can also set different priorities and weight for 2 records that are employed for the exact same service, but point to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. Using an SRV record you can employ your domain address or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the real 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 which you have set.
SRV Records in Web Hosting
You're going to be able to set up a completely new SRV record for each of the domain names you host in a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you are able to manage them with ease via the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and minutes later any new record you create is going to be active. Hepsia comes with a very intuitive interface and all it requires to create an SRV record is to fill in a couple of text boxes - the service the record is going to 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 could leave unless of course the other provider demands different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to be active when you edit it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Through a semi-dedicated server solution from us, you'll be able to benefit from the easy to navigate DNS management tool, which is a part of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It will offer you a simple interface to set up a new record for any domain name hosted in the account, so if you need to use a domain name for any purpose, you can create a completely new SRV record with just a couple of clicks. Through basic text boxes, you'll have to enter the service, protocol and port number details, which you must have from the company offering you the service. In addition, you'll be able to pick what priority and weight the record will have if you are going to use a couple or more machines for the very same service. The default value for them is 10, but you may set any other value between 1 and 100 if necessary. Additionally, you have the option to change the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to a various different value - in this way setting the time this record is going to be active in the global DNS system after you remove it or change it.
