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’ll be able to use the domain with different companies and direct it to numerous servers at once, every single server managing a separate service. You are able to specify the port number for the connection to each and every machine, so there will not be any interference. You could also set different priorities and weight for 2 records that are used for the very same service, but direct to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having an SRV record you can employ your domain name or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the specific software running on a number of machines with different providers. Which one a customer of yours will use depends on the priority and weight values that you've set.

SRV Records in Shared Web Hosting

You are going to be able to create a completely new SRV record for any of the domains you host in a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record that you set up is going to be active. Hepsia includes a highly user-friendly interface and all it will take 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 the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, that you can leave except if the other provider requires different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to be active in case you change it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Creating a new SRV record for each and every domain hosted within a semi-dedicated server account on our end is going to be very easy and is going to take no more than several clicks using a user-friendly interface. Via the DNS administration tool inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you could make any record that you need and when you choose SRV as the type, several more textboxes will appear on your screen. There, you'll need to type in the record value, the service, the protocol and the port number and you will be set. Optionally, in case the other service provider requires it, you are also going to be able to set the weight and priority values if they have to be different from the standard value, which is 10. The range for those two options is from 1 to 100, so you've got numerous possibilities if you use a lot of servers for a specific service. You could also specify how long the newly created SRV record will remain live in case you delete it in the future by setting a TTL (Time To Live) value for it. By default, the TTL is 3600 seconds.
