An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to point a domain to a third-party server and employ it for some service different from a web site. This could be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so on. When an SRV record is created, you could specify an Internet Protocol the domain name will use and the port, which will be used to connect to the remote server. Additionally, if you have numerous SRV records for the very same service, you can set individual priorities and weights for every one of them, allowing you to send out the load between a number of machines. Such a record allows you to employ the same domain or subdomains under it with different providers, so you can employ it for various purposes even if you are unable to get all of the services from a single service provider.
SRV Records in Shared Hosting
You will be able to create a completely new SRV record for any of the domains that you host in a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without any difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and just minutes later any new record which you create will be active. Hepsia comes with a rather intuitive interface and all it takes to set up 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 and also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, which you could leave unless the other company demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to stay active when you edit it or erase it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since we acknowledge how frustrating it may be to handle DNS records, we're going to offer you an easy-to-use DNS management instrument as an element of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, so if you host your domains in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to create an SRV record without issues. We have a step-by-step guide, that will make things so much easier. Using an intuitive interface, you will need to enter the info that the other company has supplied you with - protocol, port number and service. Unless they have given you specific recommendations to change the priority and / or the weight values, you may leave those two options as they are and your brand new record will go live in a matter of minutes. The Time To Live option (TTL) could also be set to a custom value, but usually the standard value of 3600 seconds is used for most records. This value indicates the time the record will keep existing after it's modified or erased.
