SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to employ a domain name for a certain service different from a site. By creating a few SRV records, you can use the domain with different companies and point it to a number of servers at a time, every single server handling a separate service. You could specify the port number for the connection to every single machine, so there will not be any interference. You can also set different priorities and weight for 2 records which are used for the very same service, but direct to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having 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 will use depends on the priority and weight values that you have set.

SRV Records in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to create a brand new SRV record for each of the domain addresses which you host in a shared web hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them with ease in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and minutes later any new record that you create will be active. Hepsia includes a really user-friendly interface and all it requires to set up an SRV record is to fill in just a few 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 standard values, that you can leave except if the other provider needs different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to stay active in case you edit it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
