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 can be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and many others. When an SRV record is created, you can specify an Internet Protocol which the domain address will use and the port, which will be used to connect to the remote server. Furthermore, in case you have many SRV records for the very same service, you can set individual priorities and weights for each and every one of them, so you're able to send out the load between several machines. Such a record will permit you to employ the same domain or subdomains under it with different providers, so you could employ it for many purposes even if you can't get all of the services from just one provider.
SRV Records in Shared Website Hosting
You'll be able to create a new SRV record for any one of the domain names that you host inside a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you can manage them without any difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and just minutes later any new record which you set up will be active. Hepsia includes a highly intuitive interface and all it will take to set up an SRV record is to fill in just 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, which you can leave unless of course the other company requires different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to stay active if you modify it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Setting up a completely new SRV record for every domain name hosted in a semi-dedicated server account on our end is going to be very easy and is going to take no more than just a few mouse clicks using a user-friendly interface. Using the DNS administration tool in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you can create any record you need and when you select SRV as the type, several additional textboxes will appear on your screen. There, you'll need to insert the service, the protocol, the record value and also the port number and you will be set. Furthermore, if the other company requires it, you will also be able to set the weight and priority values when they have to be different from the default value, which is 10. The range for these 2 options is from 1 to 100, so you've got a lot of possibilities if you use a lot of servers for a specific service. Also, you can specify how long the new SRV record will remain active if you remove it in the future by setting a TTL (Time To Live) value for it. By default, the TTL is 3600 seconds.
