SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which permits you to use a domain for a certain service different from an Internet site. By setting up a couple of SRV records, you are able to use the domain name with different providers and point it to many servers at the same time, every single server handling 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 may as well set individual priorities and weight for 2 records that are employed for the very same service, but forward to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. With an SRV record you can employ your domain address or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the real software running on several machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours will use depends on the priority and weight values that you have set.

SRV Records in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to create a new SRV record for each of the domain names that you host within a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you are able to manage them without difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and just minutes later any new record you create is going to be active. Hepsia comes with a rather user-friendly interface and all it takes to create an SRV record is to fill in a few 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 could leave except if the other company needs different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to stay active when you edit it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
