An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to point a domain to a third-party server and employ it for a service different from a site. This may be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and many others. When an SRV record is created, you could specify an Internet Protocol the domain name will use and the port, which is to be employed to connect to the remote server. Furthermore, in case you have several SRV records for the exact same service, you are able to set different priorities and weights for each and every one of them, so you're able to spread the load between a number of machines. Such a record will permit you to employ the same domain address or subdomains under it with different providers, so you can use it for various purposes even if you are not able to get all services from just one provider.

SRV Records in Shared Website Hosting

You're going to be able to create a brand new SRV record for any of the domains you host within a shared web hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you are able to manage them with ease via the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record which you set up is going to be active. Hepsia comes with a really user-friendly interface and all it requires to set up an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record is going to 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 unless of course the other company demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to remain active when you change it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

By using a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to use our user-friendly DNS administration tool, which is a part of the in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It'll offer you a very simple interface to create a new record for each and every domain hosted within the account, so if you need to use a domain address for any purpose, you can set up a brand new SRV record with only a couple of clicks. Through very simple text boxes, you'll need to enter the service, protocol and port number info, which you must have from the company providing you with the service. Furthermore, you are going to be able to select what priority and weight the record will have if you're going to use a couple or more machines for the same service. The default value for them is 10, but you can set any other value between 1 and 100 if required. Additionally, you are going to have the option to adjust the TTL value from the default 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 delete it or modify it.
