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

SRV Records in Cloud Hosting

You're going to be able to create a brand new SRV record for any one of the domain addresses which you host inside a shared web hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you are able to manage them without difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record that you set up will be active. Hepsia features a really intuitive interface and all it requires to create an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record will be used for, the Internet protocol and also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, that you can leave unless of course the other provider needs different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to remain active when you change it or erase it at some point, the default one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Through a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to employ our intuitive DNS administration tool, which is a part of the in-house developed Hepsia website hosting CP. It'll give you a quite simple interface to create a new record for any domain address hosted within the account, so if you need to use a domain for any purpose, you can create a new SRV record with a couple of mouse clicks. Through basic text boxes, you will have to type in the service, protocol and port number information, which you must have from the company providing you with the service. In addition, you're going to be able to pick what priority and weight the record will have if you are going to use a couple or more machines for the exact same service. The default value for them is 10, but you can set any other value between 1 and 100 when necessary. In addition, you are going to have the option to change the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to any other value - thus setting the time this record will be active in the global DNS system after you remove it or change it.
