An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to point a domain name to a third-party server and employ it for a service different from a website. 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 the domain address will use and the port, which will be employed to connect to the remote server. Moreover, in case you have numerous SRV records for the exact same service, you are able to set individual priorities and weights for each one of them, in order to send out the load between many machines. Such a record will enable you to employ the same domain name or subdomains under it with different companies, so you can use it for many purposes even if you are unable to get all the services from just one provider.

SRV Records in Hosting

You are going to be able to create a brand new SRV record for any one of the domain names which you host within 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’ll be able to manage them without difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and just minutes later any new record you set up will be active. Hepsia comes with a very user-friendly interface and all it takes to create 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 default values, that you can leave unless the other provider needs different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number shows the time in seconds for the record to stay active if you edit it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

A new SRV record could be created within just seconds for each and every domain name hosted within a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, which is used to handle the semi-dedicated accounts, includes a really easy-to-use interface, so you'll be able to create any DNS record although you may have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you are able to set up records with the DNS management tool, which is part of Hepsia and once you pick SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You will need to enter the service, port number and protocol info along with the record value in them and the new record will be active right after that. The priority and weight options may be set to any value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You are able to adjust each of the two if the other provider has required you to do so. Additionally, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which indicates the duration a record is going to remain working if edited or removed, may also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
