SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which permits you to employ a domain name for a certain service different from a website. By setting up a few SRV records, you can use the domain name with different companies 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 each machine, so there will never be any interference. You can even set individual priorities and weight for two records that are used for the very same service, but point to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. With an SRV record you can employ your domain or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the actual software running on various machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours will use is determined by 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 each of the domain names that you host within a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you are able to manage them without difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record which you create is going to be active. Hepsia features a highly intuitive interface and all it takes to create an SRV record is to fill in a couple of 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 when 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 remain active if you change it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.
