An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to forward a domain name to a third-party server and use it for some service different from a website. 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 could specify an Internet Protocol the domain address will use and the port, which is to be employed to connect to the remote server. Furthermore, in case you have several SRV records for the same service, you can set individual priorities and weights for each one of them, in order to distribute the load between a number of machines. Such a record will allow you to employ the same domain or subdomains under it with different providers, so you're able to use it for different purposes even if you are not able to get all of the services from one service provider.

SRV Records in Web Hosting

You're going to be able to set up a completely new SRV record for each of the domain addresses you host inside a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you are able to manage them effortlessly in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and just minutes later any new record which you set up is going to be active. Hepsia comes with a highly intuitive interface and all it takes 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 and also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, which you could leave unless the other provider requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to remain active in case you change it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

A new SRV record may be created in just seconds for any domain hosted inside a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, which is used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts, features a very easy-to-use interface, so you'll be able to set up any DNS record even if you have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you'll be able to set up records through the DNS management tool, which is part of Hepsia and once you select SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You need to input the service, port number and protocol information along with the record value in them and the new record will be live shortly after that. The priority and weight options may be set to every value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You are able to adjust any of the two in case the other company has required you to do so. Additionally, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which reveals the duration a record is going to remain functioning if edited or erased, may also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
