SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which permits you to employ a domain name for a particular service different from a site. By setting up a couple of SRV records, you are able to use the domain address with different providers and point it to several servers at the same time, every single server managing a different service. You could specify the port number for the connection to every machine, so there won't be any interference. You can even set different 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 employ your domain name or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the real software running on several machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours will use is determined by the priority and weight values which you have set.

Given that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them without difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record which you set up will be active. Hepsia includes a really user-friendly interface and all it will take 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 as well as the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you could leave except if the other provider demands different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to remain active in case you change it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
