SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to employ a domain for a particular service different from a site. By creating a number of SRV records, you will be able to use the domain name with different providers and direct it to numerous servers at once, every single server handling a separate service. You could specify the port number for the connection to every machine, so there will never be any interference. You could also set individual priorities and weight for 2 records which are employed for the exact same service, but point 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 companies. Which one a customer of yours is going to use is determined by the priority and weight values that you have set.

SRV Records in Shared Hosting

You're going to be able to set up a new SRV record for any one of the domain addresses that you host inside a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you can manage them with ease through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record you set up will be active. Hepsia comes with a rather intuitive interface and all it will require to set up an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record will be used for, the Internet protocol plus 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 company needs different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number shows the time in seconds for the record to remain active if you change it or erase it at some point, the default one being 3600.

In addition, you'll be able to select what priority and weight the record will have if you are going to use a couple or more machines for the very same service. The standard value for them is 10, but you could set any other value between 1 and 100 if required. Furthermore, you have the option to adjust the TTL value from the standard 3600 seconds to a various different value - in this way setting the time this record will be live in the global DNS system after you remove it or modify it.
