An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to point a domain to a third-party server and employ it for a service different from a web site. This could be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, etc. When an SRV record is created, you are able to specify an Internet Protocol that the domain will use and the port, which is to be used to connect to the remote server. Moreover, in case you have many SRV records for the very same service, you could set individual priorities and weights for every one of them, in order to distribute the load between a number of machines. Such a record will enable you to employ the same domain name or subdomains under it with different providers, so you could employ it for different purposes even if you are unable to get all services from a single service provider.
SRV Records in Hosting
You're going to be able to create a new SRV record for any one of the domains that you host in a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without any difficulty 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 really 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, that you can leave unless the other company needs different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to remain active when you edit it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Creating a new SRV record for each and every domain name hosted inside a semi-dedicated server
account on our end will be very easy and will require no more than several mouse clicks via a user-friendly interface. Through the DNS management tool inside your Hepsia website hosting CP, you can create any record you need and once you pick SRV as the type, several additional textboxes will appear on your screen. There, you will have to input the record value, the protocol, the service along with the port number and you'll be all set. Furthermore, in case the other service provider requires it, you'll also be able to set the weight and priority values if they have to be different from the default value, which is 10. The range for these two options is from 1 to 100, so you will have a great deal of possibilities if you use many servers for a specific service. You may also outline how long the newly created SRV record will remain live if you delete it in the future by setting a TTL (Time To Live) value for it. By default, the TTL is 3600 seconds.
