An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to forward a domain to a third-party server and use it for a service different from a web site. This can be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so on. When an SRV record is created, you can specify an Internet Protocol that the domain will use and the port, which is to be employed to connect to the remote server. In addition, if you have numerous SRV records for the exact same service, you are able to set different priorities and weights for each and every one of them, so that you can distribute the load between several machines. Such a record will allow you to employ the same domain or subdomains under it with different companies, so you can employ it for many purposes even if you cannot get all services from just one service provider.

SRV Records in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to create a completely new SRV record for any one of the domains that you host within a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record you create will be active. Hepsia includes a really user-friendly interface and all it takes to set up an SRV record is to fill in a couple of text boxes - the service the record will be used for, the Internet protocol as well as 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 demands different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to be active in case you edit it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A completely new SRV record may be created in a matter of seconds for any domain name hosted in a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts, comes with a very easy-to-use interface, so you will be able to set up any DNS record although you may have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you are able to create records via the DNS management tool, which is a part of Hepsia and once you pick SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You will need to type the service, port number and protocol details plus the record value in them and the new record is going to be working soon after that. The priority and weight options could be set to any value between 1 and 100, the default one being 10. You are able to adjust any one of the two if the other provider has requested you to do so. Also, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which shows the duration a record is going to remain active if changed or deleted, may also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
