SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to employ a domain for a particular service different from a site. By setting up a couple of SRV records, you can use the domain name with different providers and direct it to several servers at once, each and every server managing a different service. You can specify the port number for the connection to every machine, so there won't be any interference. You could also set individual priorities and weight for two records which are employed for the same service, but point to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. With an SRV record you can use your domain name or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the actual software running on several machines with different companies. Which one a client of yours is going to use is determined by the priority and weight values which you have set.

SRV Records in Website Hosting

You're going to be able to set up a new SRV record for any one of the domain addresses you host within a shared website hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without any difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record you set up is going to be active. Hepsia includes a rather user-friendly interface and all it takes 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 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 needs different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to stay active when you edit it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.

It is going to offer you a very simple interface to create a new record for each and every domain address hosted within the account, so if you need to use a domain address for any purpose, you could create a new SRV record with a couple of mouse clicks. Through simple text boxes, you'll need to input the service, protocol and port number info, which you ought to have from the company offering you the service. Moreover, you will be able to select what priority and weight the record will have if you're planning to use a couple or more machines for the very same service. The default value for them is 10, but you can set any other value between 1 and 100 when necessary. Moreover, you'll have the option to change the TTL value from the standard 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 delete it or change it.
