An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to forward a domain to a third-party server and employ it for a service different from a site. This can be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so on. When an SRV record is set up, you could specify an Internet Protocol that the domain name will use and the port, that will be employed to connect to the remote server. Additionally, if you have several SRV records for the very same service, you can set various priorities and weights for every one of them, so that you can send out the load between a number of machines. Such a record will enable you to employ the same domain or subdomains under it with different companies, so you could use it for different purposes even if you are not able to get all the services from one service provider.
SRV Records in Cloud Website Hosting
You'll be able to create a completely new SRV record for any one of the domain addresses which you host in a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you can manage them with ease in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record you set up will be active. Hepsia features a rather intuitive interface and all it will require to create an SRV record is to fill in a few 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 except if the other provider demands different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to stay active when you edit it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Through a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you'll be able to employ our easy to navigate DNS management tool, which is a part of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP. It's going to provide you with a rather simple interface to set up a new record for each and every domain name hosted within the account, so if you wish to use a domain for any purpose, you can set up a completely new SRV record with only a few mouse clicks. Via simple text boxes, you'll need to type in the service, protocol and port number details, which you should have from the company offering you the service. Furthermore, you're going to be able to pick what priority and weight the record will have if you're planning to use a couple or more machines for the very same service. The default value for them is 10, but you could set any other value between 1 and 100 if needed. In addition, you have the option to change the TTL value from the standard 3600 seconds to any other value - thus setting the time this record is going to be live in the global DNS system after you delete it or change it.
