An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to direct a domain name to a third-party server and use it for some service different from a 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 set up, you could specify an Internet Protocol which the domain address will use and the port, which is to be used to connect to the remote server. Also, provided that you have many SRV records for the exact same service, you'll be able to set individual priorities and weights for every single one of them, so that you can 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 could use it for various purposes even if you can't get all services from one service provider.
SRV Records in Hosting
You're going to be able to set up a brand new SRV record for each of the domains you host inside a shared website hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you’ll be able to 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 comes with a rather user-friendly interface and all it will require 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 except when the other provider requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number shows the time in seconds for the record to stay active in case you change it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you are going to be able to take advantage of the user-friendly DNS administration tool, that is a part of the in-house developed Hepsia hosting CP. It'll offer you a quite simple interface to set up a new record for each domain hosted inside the account, so if you need to use a domain for any purpose, you can set up a completely new SRV record with only a couple of clicks. Via very simple text boxes, you will have to enter the service, protocol and port number info, which you must have from the company offering you the service. Additionally, you'll be able to select what priority and weight the record will have if you are 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 necessary. Additionally, you have the option to change the TTL value from the standard 3600 seconds to a various different value - in this way setting the time this record is going to be live in the global DNS system after you delete it or edit it.
