An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to redirect a domain to a third-party server and employ it for a service different from an Internet site. This may be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so forth. When an SRV record is created, you can specify an Internet Protocol the domain will use and the port, that will be used to connect to the remote server. Moreover, if you have many SRV records for the exact same service, you'll be able to set various priorities and weights for each one of them, so you can send out the load between many machines. Such a record allows you to use the same domain address or subdomains under it with different companies, so you're able to employ it for many purposes even if you can't get all the services from just one service provider.

SRV Records in Shared Website Hosting

If you host a domain address inside a shared website hosting account from our company and we control the DNS records for it, you will be able to set up a new SRV record with just a few clicks inside the DNS Records area of your Hepsia CP. Our easy to navigate interface makes it more simple to create a new record in comparison with other hosting Control Panels, so if you need an SRV record, you will only have to fill a few boxes and you will be set. This includes the protocol and also the port number, the value i.e. the actual record, the priority plus the weight. For the last two you can set any value between 1 and 100 based upon which server you would like customers to access first or what recommendations the other company has given you. As an additional option, you can pick how long this record is going to be active after you edit it or delete it - the so-called Time To Live time, which is measured in seconds. If you're not asked otherwise, you may leave the default value there.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A completely new SRV record may be created within seconds for any domain address hosted in a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, used to control the semi-dedicated accounts, comes with a really easy-to-use interface, so you'll be able to set up any DNS record even when you have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you are able to create records with the DNS administration tool, which is a part of Hepsia and once you choose SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You need to type the service, port number and protocol info in addition to the record value in them and the new record is going to be working right after that. The priority and weight options can be set to any value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You could change any of the two in case the other provider has required 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, could also be modified from the default 3600 seconds.
