SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to employ a domain for a certain service different from an Internet site. By creating a few SRV records, you will be able to use the domain with different providers and direct it to numerous servers at a time, every single server handling a different service. You could 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 that are used for the exact same service, but point 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 actual software running on several machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours is going to use is determined by the priority and weight values that you've set.

SRV Records in Cloud Website Hosting

You're going to be able to create a new SRV record for any of the domains that you host inside a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you can manage them without any difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and just minutes later any new record you create will be active. Hepsia comes with a rather user-friendly interface and all it requires to create an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record is going to be used for, the Internet protocol and the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you could leave unless of course the other provider requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to stay active if you edit it or erase it at some point, the default one being 3600.
