SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to employ a domain name for a certain service different from a site. By creating a number of SRV records, you will be able to use the domain with different companies and direct it to a number of servers at a time, each and every server managing a different service. You'll be able to specify the port number for the connection to every machine, so there will not be any interference. You can even set different priorities and weight for 2 records which 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 specific software running on various machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours is going to use is determined by the priority and weight values that you've set.

SRV Records in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to set up a completely new SRV record for each of the domains you host in a shared web hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them without any difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record that you set up is going to be active. Hepsia includes a very intuitive interface and all it will require to create an SRV record is to fill in 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, which you can leave except if the other provider demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to remain active when you change it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

As we know how irritating it may be to manage DNS records, we're going to offer you an easy-to-use DNS management tool as part of our custom-made Hepsia CP, so when you host your domains in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you're going to be able to set up an SRV record without any problems. We have a step-by-step guide, that'll make things even easier. Using an intuitive interface, you will need to type in the info that the other company has provided you with - protocol, port number and service. Unless they have given you specific recommendations to change the priority and the weight values, you could leave those two options as they are and your brand new record will go live within a couple of minutes. The Time To Live option (TTL) can also be set to a custom value, but normally the standard value of 3600 seconds is used for the majority of records. This value indicates the time the record will keep existing after it is modified or erased.
