An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to direct a domain name to a third-party server and use it for some service different from an Internet site. This could be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so forth. When an SRV record is set up, you are able to specify an Internet Protocol which the domain will use and the port, which is to be used to connect to the remote server. Additionally, in case you have numerous SRV records for the very same service, you'll be able to set individual priorities and weights for every single one of them, so that you can distribute the load between several machines. Such a record will allow you to use the same domain name or subdomains under it with different providers, so you're able to use it for various purposes even if you can't get all the services from just one service provider.

SRV Records in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to create a completely new SRV record for any one of the domains you host inside a shared web hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them effortlessly in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record you set up is going to be active. Hepsia comes with a rather intuitive interface and all it will require to create an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record is going to 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 of course the other provider demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to remain active in case you modify it or remove it at some point, the default one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using a semi-dedicated server solution from us, you will be able to take advantage of the easy to work with DNS management tool, which is a part of the in-house developed Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It'll offer you a rather simple interface to create a new record for any domain address hosted within the account, so if you would like to use a domain address for any purpose, you could create a new SRV record with a couple of clicks. Via basic text boxes, you'll need to input the service, protocol and port number info, which you should have from the company providing you the service. Furthermore, you'll be able to select what priority and weight the record will have if you're planning to use a couple or more machines for the same service. The standard value for them is 10, but you may set any other value between 1 and 100 if necessary. Additionally, you are going to have the option to change the TTL value from the standard 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 change it.
