SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to use a domain for a certain service different from an Internet site. By setting up a few SRV records, you are able to use the domain name with different companies and direct it to numerous servers simultaneously, 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 won't be any interference. You could also set individual priorities and weight for two records which are employed for the exact same service, but direct to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. Using an SRV record you can use your domain or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the actual software running on various machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours is going to use will depend on the priority and weight values that you have set.

SRV Records in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to set up a new SRV record for any one of the domain addresses which you host in a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them with ease through the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and just minutes later any new record that you create is going to be active. Hepsia includes a rather intuitive interface and all it takes to set up an SRV record is to fill in just a few text boxes - the service the record will be used for, the Internet protocol plus the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, that you can leave unless of course the other provider requires 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 change it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
