An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to forward a domain to a third-party server and employ it for a service different from a web 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 set up, you could specify an Internet Protocol which the domain address will use and the port, that will be used to connect to the remote server. In addition, provided that you have several SRV records for the exact same service, you can set various priorities and weights for each and every one of them, so you're able to send out the load between a number of 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 provider.

SRV Records in Cloud Website Hosting

You're going to be able to create a brand new SRV record for any one of the domain addresses that you host within a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without any difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record you create will be active. Hepsia includes a highly intuitive interface and all it requires to set up an SRV record is to fill in just a few text boxes - the service the record is going to be used for, the Internet protocol plus the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, that you can leave unless the other provider requires different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to stay active if you edit it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using a semi-dedicated server solution from us, you'll be able to employ our intuitive DNS administration tool, which is a part of the in-house developed Hepsia website hosting CP. It is going to provide you with a very simple user interface to create a new record for each domain address hosted inside the account, so if you would like to use a domain for any purpose, you could create a new SRV record with just a few mouse clicks. Via basic text boxes, you will need to type in the service, protocol and port number details, which you must have from the company offering you the service. In addition, you will be able to select what priority and weight the record will have if you are planning 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. In addition, you have the option to change the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to a various different value - this way setting the time this record is going to be active in the global DNS system after you erase it or edit it.
