An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to direct a domain name to a third-party server and use it for a service different from a web site. This may be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, etc. When an SRV record is set up, you could specify an Internet Protocol that the domain address will use and the port, which is to be employed to connect to the remote server. Additionally, provided that you have a few SRV records for the exact same service, you could set individual priorities and weights for each one of them, so you can spread the load between a number of machines. Such a record allows you to use the same domain address 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 the services from a single provider.

SRV Records in Web Hosting

You'll be able to create a completely new SRV record for any of the domains you host within a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and just minutes later any new record you create is going to be active. Hepsia includes a very user-friendly interface and all it will require to set up 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 also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you could leave unless of course the other provider requires different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to be active in case you change it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

It is going to give you a simple user interface to create a new record for every single domain name hosted inside the account, so if you need to use a domain for any purpose, you could create a brand new SRV record with just a few mouse clicks. Using very simple text boxes, you'll have to type in the service, protocol and port number information, which you ought to have from the company providing you the service. Furthermore, you're going to 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 same service. The standard value for them is 10, but you can set any other value between 1 and 100 if needed. Furthermore, you'll have the option to adjust the TTL value from the standard 3600 seconds to a various different value - thus setting the time this record is going to be active in the global DNS system after you erase it or modify it.
