An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to redirect a domain to a third-party server and employ it for some service different from a website. This could be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, etc. When an SRV record is set up, you could specify an Internet Protocol that the domain will use and the port, which is to be used to connect to the remote server. Additionally, if you have many SRV records for the same service, you are able to set various priorities and weights for every single one of them, in order to send out the load between several machines. Such a record will permit you to use the same domain name or subdomains under it with different companies, so you can employ it for different purposes even if you can't get all of the services from a single service provider.
SRV Records in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to create a completely new SRV record for each of the domain names that you host inside a shared website hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you can manage them without difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record that you set up is going to be active. Hepsia features a highly intuitive interface and all it will require 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 and the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you can leave unless the other provider demands different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to be active if you edit it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A completely new SRV record could be created within just seconds for each and every domain address hosted inside a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, used to control the semi-dedicated accounts, features a really easy-to-use interface, so you will be able to create any DNS record although you may have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you may set up records via the DNS management tool, which is a part of Hepsia and once you choose SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You have to input the service, port number and protocol information along with the record value in them and the new record will be working soon after that. The priority and weight options could be set to any value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You can adjust any one of the two in case the other company has requested you to do so. Additionally, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which reveals the duration a record is going to remain working if edited or erased, can also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
