An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to forward a domain name to a third-party server and employ it for some service different from an Internet 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 are able to specify an Internet Protocol that the domain address will use and the port, which will be used to connect to the remote server. Furthermore, in case you have many SRV records for the same service, you could set different priorities and weights for each one of them, so you're able to send out 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're able to use it for different purposes even if you can't get all services from just one provider.

SRV Records in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to create a new SRV record for any of the domains you host in 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 will be able to manage them without any difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record which you create is going to be active. Hepsia features a really user-friendly interface and all it takes to create an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record will be used for, the Internet protocol and also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, which you could leave except when the other provider requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to be active in case you modify it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Creating a new SRV record for every single domain address hosted within a semi-dedicated server account on our end will be very easy and will require no more than just a few mouse clicks via a user-friendly interface. Via the DNS management tool in your Hepsia hosting CP, you could make any record that you need and when you select SRV as the type, several more textboxes will appear on your screen. There, you'll need to enter the record value, the protocol, the service and the port number and you'll be set. Furthermore, if the other company requires it, you are also going to be able to set the weight and priority values when they have to be different from the default value, which is 10. The range for these 2 options is from 1 to 100, so you have a number of possibilities if you use many servers for a specific service. Also, you can determine how long the newly created SRV record will remain active if you erase it in the future by setting a TTL (Time To Live) value for it. By default, the TTL is 3600 seconds.
