SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to employ a domain for a particular service different from an Internet site. By setting up a few SRV records, you’ll be able to use the domain name with different companies and forward it to many servers at a time, each server handling a separate service. You are able to 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 that are used for the same service, but direct to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having 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 actual software running on a number of machines with different providers. Which one a customer of yours will use is determined by the priority and weight values you have set.

SRV Records in Cloud Hosting

You're going to be able to create a new SRV record for each of the domains you host inside a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them with ease in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record that you create will be active. Hepsia comes with a highly intuitive interface and all it takes 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 plus the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, that you can leave unless the other provider requires different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to stay active if you change it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
