An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to point 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, etc. When an SRV record is created, you are able to specify an Internet Protocol the domain address will use and the port, which will be used to connect to the remote server. Additionally, in case you have numerous SRV records for the exact same service, you can set various priorities and weights for every single one of them, allowing you to send out the load between many machines. Such a record will enable you to use the same domain address or subdomains under it with different companies, so you can employ it for different purposes even if you are not able to get all the services from one service provider.
SRV Records in Cloud Hosting
You're going to be able to create a brand new SRV record for each of the domain addresses you host within a shared website hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you can manage them without any difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and just minutes later any new record that you set up is going to be active. Hepsia comes with a very intuitive interface and all it requires 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 plus 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 demands different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to stay active in case you modify it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Through a semi-dedicated server solution from us, you'll be able to employ the user-friendly DNS management tool, that is a part of the in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It will provide you with a simple user interface to create a new record for any domain hosted within the account, so if you want to use a domain name for any purpose, you can set up a brand new SRV record with a couple of mouse clicks. Through simple 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. Additionally, you are going to 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 exact same service. The standard value for them is 10, but you may set any other value between 1 and 100 if necessary. Moreover, you'll have the option to adjust the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to any other value - this way setting the time this record is going to be live in the global DNS system after you erase it or modify it.
