Learn precisely what SRV records are and what their part in the DNS system is.
An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to redirect a domain name to a third-party server and employ it for a service different from a website. This may be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and many others. When an SRV record is created, you could specify an Internet Protocol the domain will use and the port, which will be employed to connect to the remote server. Furthermore, if you have a few SRV records for the very same service, you'll be able to set various priorities and weights for every one of them, in order to spread the load between several machines. Such a record will permit you to employ the same domain or subdomains under it with different providers, so you can use it for different purposes even if you cannot get all services from one provider.
SRV Records in Cloud Web Hosting
You are going to be able to set up a brand new SRV record for any of the domains that you host in a shared website hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you are able to manage them without any difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record that you create will be active. Hepsia comes with a highly intuitive interface and all it will require to create 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 the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you can leave except when the other provider needs different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to be active if you edit it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A new SRV record could be created in a matter of seconds for each domain hosted inside a semi-dedicated server
from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, employed to control the semi-dedicated accounts, comes with a rather easy-to-use interface, so you'll be able to set up any DNS record even if you have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you can create records via the DNS administration tool, which is part of Hepsia and once you choose SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You will need to type the service, port number and protocol information plus the record value in them and the new record will be working soon after that. The priority and weight options can be set to every value between 1 and 100, the default one being 10. You are able to adjust each of the two in case the other company has asked you to do so. Also, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which indicates the duration a record will remain live if edited or deleted, can also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
