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 an Internet site. By setting up a number of SRV records, you can use the domain address with different providers and forward it to a number of servers simultaneously, every single server managing a separate service. You'll be able to specify the port number for the connection to every machine, so there will not be any interference. You could also set different priorities and weight for two records which are used for the exact same service, but forward to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having an SRV record you can employ your domain name or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the actual software running on several machines with different providers. Which one a client of yours will use is determined by the priority and weight values that you've set.
SRV Records in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to create a completely new SRV record for any of the domains you host within a shared website hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you can manage them without any difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record you set up is going to be active. Hepsia comes with a very intuitive interface and all it will require to create an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record will be used for, the Internet protocol and the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, which you can leave unless the other company requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to remain active when you edit it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
