SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to use a domain for a specific service different from an Internet site. By creating a couple of SRV records, you can use the domain address with different providers and point it to many servers at the same time, each server handling a separate service. You can specify the port number for the connection to every machine, so there will not be any interference. You may as well set individual priorities and weight for two records which are used for the same service, but direct 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 real 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 which you have set.

SRV Records in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to create a brand new SRV record for each of the domain names which you host inside a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you can manage them without any difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record which you set up will be active. Hepsia includes a highly intuitive interface and all it will take to set up an SRV record is to fill in a couple of text boxes - the service the record will be used for, the Internet protocol as well as the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you can leave except if the other provider demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number shows the time in seconds for the record to stay active if you change it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

By using a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you're going to be able to use the easy to work with DNS administration tool, which is a part of the in-house designed Hepsia hosting CP. It'll give you a quite simple user interface to set up a new record for any domain hosted within the account, so if you would like to use a domain name for any purpose, you can create a completely new SRV record with a couple of clicks. Through very simple text boxes, you'll need to input the service, protocol and port number info, which you should have from the company offering you the service. Also, you are going to be able to pick what priority and weight the record will have if you intend to use a couple or more machines for the exact same service. The standard value for them is 10, but you can set any other value between 1 and 100 when necessary. Moreover, you have the option to adjust the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to any other value - in this way setting the time this record is going to be live in the global DNS system after you remove it or change it.
