An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to forward a domain name to a third-party server and use it for a service different from a site. This could 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 address will use and the port, which is to be used to connect to the remote server. Moreover, if you have numerous SRV records for the same service, you'll be able to set various priorities and weights for every one of them, in order to send out the load between a number of machines. Such a record will permit you to employ the same domain address or subdomains under it with different companies, so you're able to employ it for many purposes even if you are not able to get all of the services from just one provider.

SRV Records in Cloud Website Hosting

You are going to be able to create a brand new SRV record for each of the domain names you host in a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them without difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and just minutes later any new record you set up is going to be active. Hepsia includes a very user-friendly 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 default values, that you can leave unless the other provider requires different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number illustrates 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

Using a semi-dedicated server solution from our company, you are going to be able to take advantage of our easy to navigate DNS administration tool, that is a part of the in-house developed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It is going to give you a rather simple user interface to set up a new record for any domain name hosted in the account, so if you would like to use a domain address for any purpose, you can create a brand new SRV record with only a couple of mouse clicks. Through basic text boxes, you will need to type in the service, protocol and port number information, which you should have from the company providing you the service. In addition, you'll be able to pick 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 default value for them is 10, but you may set any other value between 1 and 100 if necessary. In addition, you'll have the option to change the TTL value from the standard 3600 seconds to any other value - this way setting the time this record is going to be active in the global DNS system after you remove it or change it.
