SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which permits you to employ a domain for a certain service different from a site. By creating a number of SRV records, you’ll be able to use the domain name with different companies and point it to numerous servers at the same time, each server managing a different service. You are able to specify the port number for the connection to every single machine, so there will never be any interference. You can even set individual priorities and weight for 2 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 use your domain address or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the specific software running on several machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours is going to use depends on the priority and weight values that you have set.
SRV Records in Shared Hosting
If you host a domain address inside a shared hosting account from our company and we control the DNS records for it, you're going to be able to create a new SRV record with just a few mouse clicks within the DNS Records section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Our intuitive interface makes it more simple to create a new record in comparison to other website hosting Control Panels, so if you require an SRV record, you'll simply need to fill a few boxes and you will be all set. This includes the protocol as well as the port number, the value i.e. the actual record, the priority plus the weight. For the last 2 you could set any value between 1 and 100 based on which server you'd like users to access first or what instructions the other company has given you. As an extra option, you may choose how long this record is going to be active after you edit it or delete it - the so-called Time To Live time, that is measured in seconds. Unless requested otherwise, you can leave the default value there.
