SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to employ a domain for a certain service different from a site. By creating a few SRV records, you’re able to use the domain with different companies and point it to numerous servers at a time, every single server managing a separate service. You can 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 two records which are employed for the exact same service, but point to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having an SRV record you can employ your domain or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the actual software running on several machines with different providers. 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 Shared Hosting

You're going to be able to create a brand new SRV record for each of the domain addresses you host within a shared website hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you can manage them without any difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia CP and just minutes later any new record that you set up is going to be active. Hepsia includes a rather intuitive interface and all it will take to create an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record is going to 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 provider requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to be active if you change it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Because we know how frustrating it could be to deal with DNS records, we'll present you with an easy-to-use DNS administration instrument as an element of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, so when you host your domain addresses within a semi-dedicated server account from us, you are going to be able to create an SRV record with no troubles. We have a step-by-step guide, that'll make things even easier. Using an intuitive interface, you will need to enter the information that the other company has provided you with - protocol, port number and service. Unless they have given you specific instructions to change the priority and the weight values, you could leave these two options as they are and your brand new record will go live in a couple of minutes. The Time To Live option (TTL) can also be set to a custom value, but normally the standard value of 3600 seconds is used for the majority of records. This value shows the time the record will keep existing after it is edited or removed.
