SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to use a domain name for a particular service different from a website. By creating a couple of SRV records, you will be able to use the domain name with different providers and point it to numerous servers at the same time, each and every server handling a separate service. You'll be able to specify the port number for the connection to every single machine, so there will never be any interference. You can also set different priorities and weight for two records which are employed for the same service, but direct to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. Using an SRV record you can use your domain address or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the specific software running on various machines with different providers. Which one a customer of yours is going to use depends on the priority and weight values that you've set.

SRV Records in Cloud Hosting

You're going to be able to set up a completely new SRV record for any one of the domain addresses which you host in a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you are able to manage them without difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and minutes later any new record which you create will be active. Hepsia features a very intuitive interface and all it will require to set up an SRV record is to fill in a couple of text boxes - the service the record will 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 is short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to stay active if you modify it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
