An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to redirect a domain name to a third-party server and employ it for some 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 are able to specify an Internet Protocol which the domain name will use and the port, which is to be used to connect to the remote server. Also, provided that you have numerous SRV records for the exact same service, you could set individual priorities and weights for every one of them, so you're able to send out the load between several machines. Such a record allows you to use the same domain name or subdomains under it with different companies, so you can employ it for various purposes even if you are unable to get all services from just one service provider.

SRV Records in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every cloud web hosting we offer, gives you an easy means to set up any DNS record you require for a domain or a subdomain inside your account. The user-friendly interface is much more simple compared to what other companies provide and you'll not have to do anything more complex than to fill a few boxes. For a new SRV record, you will need to sign in, navigate to the DNS Records section and then click the "New" button. Within the small pop-up that'll show up, you have to type in the service, protocol and port details. You can even set the priority and weight values, which should be between 1 and 100, that would matter if you have no less than two servers dealing with the very same service. If you use a machine from a different company, they may also ask you to set a TTL value different from the default 3600 seconds. This value specifies how long the newly created record is going to remain operational after you modify it in the future.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A completely new SRV record can be created in just seconds for every single domain name hosted in a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to handle the semi-dedicated accounts, comes with a very easy-to-use interface, so you will be able to create any DNS record even though you may have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you are able to create records via the DNS administration tool, which is an element of Hepsia and once you pick SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You need to type the service, port number and protocol information in addition to the record value in them and the new record is going to be active soon after that. The priority and weight options could be set to every value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You could change any one of the two if the other company has asked you to do so. In addition, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which reveals the duration a record will remain functioning if changed or deleted, can also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
