SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to use a domain name for a certain service different from a website. By setting up a few SRV records, you can use the domain address with different companies and direct it to numerous servers at a time, every single server managing a separate service. You'll be able to specify the port number for the connection to every single machine, so there won't be any interference. You could also set individual priorities and weight for 2 records which are used for the same service, but point 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 various machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours is going to use depends on the priority and weight values which you have set.

SRV Records in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to set up a completely new SRV record for any of the domain names which you host in a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without any difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record which you set up will be active. Hepsia features a very user-friendly interface and all it takes 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 and also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you can leave unless 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 stay active in case you edit 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 any domain address hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account on our end is going to be very easy and will take no more than just a few mouse clicks via a user-friendly interface. Through the DNS management tool in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you can create any record that you need and when you choose SRV as the type, several additional textboxes will appear on your screen. There, you will have to insert the record value, the service, the protocol and the port number and you will be all set. Furthermore, if the other company requires it, you're also going to be able to set the weight and priority values in case 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 number of possibilities if you use a large number of servers for a particular service. Also, you can specify how long the newly created SRV record will remain active in case you delete it in the future by setting a TTL (Time To Live) value for it. By default, the TTL is 3600 seconds.
