SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to employ a domain for a certain service different from a website. By setting up a few SRV records, you’re able to use the domain name with different companies and direct it to numerous servers simultaneously, each server managing a different service. You'll be able to specify the port number for the connection to each machine, so there will never be any interference. You could also set individual priorities and weight for 2 records that are used for the exact same service, but forward to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. With an SRV record you can employ your domain address or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the real software running on various machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours will use will depend on the priority and weight values that you've set.

SRV Records in Web Hosting

You will be able to create a new SRV record for each of the domain names which you host inside a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without any difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record you create will be active. Hepsia includes a really intuitive interface and all it will require 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 also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, which you can leave unless of course the other company requires different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to stay active in case you change it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

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