An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to forward a domain to a third-party server and employ it for some service different from an Internet site. This may be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so forth. When an SRV record is created, you can specify an Internet Protocol which the domain name will use and the port, which will be employed to connect to the remote server. Moreover, in case you have several SRV records for the same service, you can set different priorities and weights for every single one of them, allowing you to send out the load between many machines. Such a record will allow you to use the same domain or subdomains under it with different providers, so you can use it for different purposes even if you cannot get all the services from just one service provider.
SRV Records in Shared Hosting
You're going to be able to create a new SRV record for any one of the domain addresses you host within a shared web hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them with ease in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record which you set up will be active. Hepsia features a very 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 default values, which you could leave except if the other company needs 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 delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
With a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you'll be able to take advantage of our easy to work with DNS administration tool, that is a part of the in-house designed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It's going to give you a rather simple interface to set up a new record for each and every domain hosted in the account, so if you wish to use a domain address for any purpose, you can set up a new SRV record with only a few mouse clicks. Using basic text boxes, you'll need to input the service, protocol and port number information, which you should have from the company providing you with the service. Furthermore, you will be able to pick what priority and weight the record will have if you're going to use a couple or more machines for the very same service. The standard value for them is 10, but you can set any other value between 1 and 100 if required. Moreover, you will have the option to adjust the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to any other value - in this way setting the time this record will be active in the global DNS system after you erase it or edit it.
