SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which permits you to employ a domain name for a certain service different from a site. By setting up a number of SRV records, you will be able to use the domain address with different providers and forward it to several servers at a time, every single server handling a separate service. You could specify the port number for the connection to each and every machine, so there will not be any interference. You can even set different priorities and weight for two records which are used for the very same service, but direct to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. Using an SRV record you can use your domain address or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the specific software running on a number of machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours is going to use will depend on the priority and weight values which you have set.

SRV Records in Shared Website Hosting

You are going to be able to set up a brand new SRV record for any of the domains you host in a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you are able to manage them without any difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record you create will be active. Hepsia features a highly user-friendly interface and all it will require to set up 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 plus the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, that you can leave except if the other company requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to remain active in case you modify it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Setting up a completely new SRV record for every single domain address hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account on our end will be very easy and will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks using a user-friendly interface. Via the DNS administration tool in your Hepsia hosting CP, you can create any record you need and when you choose SRV as the type, several additional textboxes will appear on your screen. There, you will have to enter the service, the protocol, the record value along with the port number and you will be ready. Furthermore, if the other service provider requires it, you're also going to 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 have lots of possibilities if you use a large number of servers for a given service. You may also specify how long the newly created SRV record will remain live if you remove it in the future by setting a TTL (Time To Live) value for it. By default, the TTL is 3600 seconds.
