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

SRV Records in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to create a completely new SRV record for each of the domain addresses that you host in a shared website hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you can manage them without any difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record which you create is going to be active. Hepsia includes a rather user-friendly interface and all it will require to set up an SRV record is to fill in a couple of text boxes - the service the record is going to be used for, the Internet protocol plus the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you could leave except if 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 remain active if you change it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A new SRV record can be created within seconds for any domain hosted inside a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, which is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts, includes a rather easy-to-use interface, so you will 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'll be able to create records using the DNS management tool, which is an element of Hepsia and once you choose SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You will need to input the service, port number and protocol info plus the record value in them and the new record will be working soon after that. The priority and weight options could be set to every value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You may adjust any of the two if the other company has required you to do so. In addition, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which indicates the duration a record will remain functioning if edited or deleted, can also be modified from the default 3600 seconds.
