An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to point a domain to a third-party server and employ it for a service different from a site. This may 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 name will use and the port, that will be used to connect to the remote server. Also, in case you have numerous SRV records for the very same service, you'll be able to set different priorities and weights for each one of them, so that you can spread the load between several machines. Such a record will permit you to employ the same domain address or subdomains under it with different companies, so you could employ it for various purposes even if you are not able to get all services from just one provider.
SRV Records in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to create a brand new SRV record for any one of the domains which you host inside a shared web hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them effortlessly in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and minutes later any new record that you create will be active. Hepsia includes a rather intuitive interface and all it takes to create 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 can leave unless of course the other company 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 modify it or remove it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
A completely new SRV record could be created within just seconds for every single domain address hosted inside a semi-dedicated server
from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, employed to control the semi-dedicated accounts, comes with a really easy-to-use interface, so you will be able to create 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 create records using the DNS administration tool, which is an element of Hepsia and once you choose SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You have to input the service, port number and protocol details plus the record value in them and the new record will be working right after that. The priority and weight options can be set to any value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You'll be able to adjust each of the two in case the other provider has required you to do so. Also, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which indicates the duration a record will remain active if changed or erased, may also be modified from the default 3600 seconds.
