An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to direct a domain name 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, and so on. When an SRV record is set up, you are able to specify an Internet Protocol which the domain address will use and the port, which will be employed to connect to the remote server. Moreover, if you have many SRV records for the exact same service, you could set individual priorities and weights for every one of them, so that you can distribute the load between a number of machines. Such a record will permit you to use the same domain or subdomains under it with different providers, so you can employ it for various purposes even if you cannot get all the services from just one service provider.
SRV Records in Shared Website Hosting
You'll be able to create a completely new SRV record for any of the domain addresses that you host within a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you can manage them with ease in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record which you create is going to be active. Hepsia comes with a very intuitive interface and all it will require to create an SRV record is to fill in just 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 can leave unless the other company demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates 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 Hosting
Through a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to use the easy to navigate DNS administration tool, which is a part of the in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It is going to offer you a very simple user interface to create a new record for each domain name hosted within the account, so if you want to use a domain name for any purpose, you can set up a completely new SRV record with just a few mouse clicks. Via very simple text boxes, you'll need to enter the service, protocol and port number information, which you must have from the company offering you the service. Moreover, you're 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 necessary. In addition, you are going to have the option to adjust the TTL value from the standard 3600 seconds to any other value - in this way setting the time this record is going to be live in the global DNS system after you erase it or edit it.
