An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to direct a domain to a third-party server and use it for a service different from a web site. This could be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, etc. When an SRV record is created, you could specify an Internet Protocol the domain address will use and the port, that will be used to connect to the remote server. In addition, if you have numerous SRV records for the very same service, you'll be able to set individual priorities and weights for every one of them, so you're able to spread the load between several machines. Such a record allows you to use the same domain or subdomains under it with different providers, so you're able to use it for many purposes even if you cannot get all of the services from just one service provider.
SRV Records in Web Hosting
You will be able to set up a new SRV record for any of the domains that you host within a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them with ease through the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and minutes later any new record that you create is going to be active. Hepsia features a highly intuitive interface and all it will require to set up an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record will be used for, the Internet protocol as well as the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, which you could leave except if the other provider needs different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to stay active in case you modify it or erase it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Creating a new SRV record for each and every domain hosted in a semi-dedicated server account on our end will be very easy and will require no more than a few clicks using a user-friendly interface. Via the DNS management tool within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you could make any record that you need and once you select SRV as the type, several more textboxes will appear on your screen. There, you must type in the record value, the service, the protocol along with the port number and you will be all set. Furthermore, in case the other service provider requires it, you're also going to be able to set the weight and priority values when they have to be different from the standard value, which is 10. The range for those 2 options is from 1 to 100, so you will have quite a lot of possibilities if you use a large number of servers for a given service. You can also define how long the newly created SRV record will remain live if you erase it in the future by setting a TTL (Time To Live) value for it. By default, the TTL is 3600 seconds.
