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, and so forth. When an SRV record is set up, you can specify an Internet Protocol the domain will use and the port, which is to be employed to connect to the remote server. Furthermore, if you have numerous SRV records for the very same service, you could set different priorities and weights for every one of them, so you can spread the load between several machines. Such a record will allow you to use the same domain or subdomains under it with different companies, so you're able to employ it for many purposes even if you can't get all services from just one service provider.

SRV Records in Shared Web Hosting

You're going to be able to create a new SRV record for any of the domains which you host within a shared website hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you are able to manage them with ease in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and minutes later any new record that you create is going to be active. Hepsia includes a highly intuitive interface and all it takes to create 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 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 provider needs different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to stay active when you edit 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 are going to be able to employ our user-friendly DNS management tool, that is a part of the in-house designed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It'll provide you with a very simple interface to create a new record for each and every domain hosted inside the account, so if you need to use a domain address for any purpose, you can set up a completely new SRV record with a couple of mouse clicks. Through simple text boxes, you will have to type in the service, protocol and port number details, which you should have from the company offering you the service. In addition, you are going to 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 exact same service. The standard value for them is 10, but you may set any other value between 1 and 100 when necessary. Furthermore, you will have the option to change the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to any other value - thus setting the time this record is going to be live in the global DNS system after you remove it or change it.
