SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to use a domain for a particular service different from an Internet site. By setting up a few SRV records, you will be able to use the domain with different companies and forward it to numerous servers simultaneously, each server handling a different service. You can specify the port number for the connection to each machine, so there won't be any interference. You may as well set different priorities and weight for two records that are employed for the exact same service, but direct to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. Using an SRV record you can use your domain or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the real software running on various machines with different providers. Which one a customer of yours is going to use is determined by the priority and weight values which you have set.

SRV Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Provided you have a cloud web hosting account with us and the DNS records for a domain address added in it are controlled by our system, you're going to be able to create any record that you need without difficulty, including an SRV one. This is done through the user-friendly Hepsia CP and once you log in to your hosting account and proceed to the DNS Records section, you'll only have to fill a couple of boxes with the necessary data and your new SRV record will be active within several hours. You can type in the service, protocol and the port number you'd like to use as well as the priority and the weight of the new record based upon how you need to set up your system or what the third-party provider needs. When required, you can even change the TTL (Time To Live) value for the record, which reveals how long it'll remain active after you change or erase it. The standard TTL value for the majority of records is 3600 seconds and you will be able to leave it unless you specifically need a different one.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A brand new SRV record could be created within just seconds for each and every domain hosted inside a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, which is used to handle the semi-dedicated accounts, includes a rather easy-to-use interface, so you will be able to set up any DNS record although you may have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you could set up records via the DNS management tool, which is a part of Hepsia and once you choose SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You need to enter the service, port number and protocol information along with the record value in them and the new record will be live soon after that. The priority and weight options can be set to every value between 1 and 100, the default one being 10. You may adjust each of the two if the other company has required you to do so. Furthermore, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which indicates the duration a record will remain live if edited or erased, can also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
