SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which allows you to use a domain name for a specific service different from a site. By creating a number of SRV records, you’re able to use the domain name with different providers and forward it to numerous servers at the same time, every single server managing a separate service. You could specify the port number for the connection to each machine, so there won't be any interference. You could also set individual priorities and weight for two records that are employed for the exact same service, but point to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having 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 various machines with different companies. Which one a client of yours is going to use depends on the priority and weight values that you've set.

You'll be able to set up a new SRV record for any of the domain addresses which you host inside a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you are able to manage them effortlessly through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record that you set up will be active. Hepsia features a highly user-friendly interface and all it will take to create an SRV record is to fill in just a few text boxes - the service the record is going to be used for, the Internet protocol and also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, that you can leave unless the other provider needs different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to stay active in case you change it or remove it at some point, the default one being 3600.
