SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to use a domain name for a specific service different from an Internet site. By setting up a number of SRV records, you are able to use the domain name with different companies and forward it to a number of servers simultaneously, each and every server managing a separate service. You could specify the port number for the connection to every single machine, so there will never be any interference. You could also set individual priorities and weight for 2 records that are employed for the very same service, but point to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. Using 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 real software running on various machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours will use is determined by the priority and weight values you have set.
SRV Records in Shared Hosting
You are going to be able to set up a new SRV record for any of the domains you host within a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them without any 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 features a highly user-friendly interface and all it takes to set up an SRV record is to fill in a few 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 unless of course the other company demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to be active when you edit it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As we know how aggravating it may be to manage DNS records, we are going to offer you an easy-to-use DNS administration instrument as an element of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, so when you host your domains inside a semi-dedicated server account from us, you are going to be able to set up an SRV record without any troubles. We have a step-by-step guide, that'll make things so much easier. Using an intuitive interface, you will need to type in the info that the other company has provided you with - protocol, port number and service. Unless they've given you specific instructions to modify the priority and / or the weight values, you could leave those two options as they are and your new record will go live in a matter of minutes. The Time To Live option (TTL) can also be set to a custom value, but normally the default value of 3600 seconds is used for the majority of records. This value reveals the time the record will continue existing after it is edited or deleted.
