SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to employ a domain for a certain service different from a site. By setting up a couple of SRV records, you will be able to use the domain address with different companies and forward it to many servers simultaneously, each and every server managing a different 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 can also set individual priorities and weight for two records that are employed for the very same service, but forward 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 instance, and have the actual software running on various machines with different providers. Which one a customer of yours will use will depend on the priority and weight values which you have set.

SRV Records in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to set up a completely new SRV record for any one of the domain names that you host in a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and minutes later any new record that you create is going to be active. Hepsia features a rather intuitive interface and all it requires to set up an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record is going to be used for, the Internet protocol as well as the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you could leave unless the other provider needs different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to stay active in case you change it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
