An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to redirect a domain to a third-party server and employ it for some service different from a web site. This could be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so forth. When an SRV record is set up, you could specify an Internet Protocol that the domain name will use and the port, which will be used to connect to the remote server. In addition, provided that you have a few SRV records for the same service, you are able to set different priorities and weights for each and every one of them, allowing you to spread the load between a number of machines. Such a record allows you to employ the same domain or subdomains under it with different companies, so you're able to use it for various purposes even if you cannot get all of the services from one service provider.

SRV Records in Shared Hosting

If you host a domain in a shared hosting account from our company and we manage the DNS records for it, you will be able to set up a new SRV record with only a few mouse clicks inside the DNS Records section of your Hepsia CP. Our intuitive interface makes it more simple to create a new record in comparison with other website hosting Control Panels, so if you require an SRV record, you will simply need to fill a couple of boxes and you will be all set. This includes the protocol as well as the port number, the value i.e. the actual record, the priority and the weight. For the last 2 you may set any value between 1 and 100 based upon which server you want users to access first or what instructions the other provider has given you. As an additional option, you can choose how long this record will be active after you modify it or delete it - the so-called Time To Live time, that is measured in seconds. If you're not requested otherwise, you can leave the default value there.

Through a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you'll be able to take advantage of the easy to work with DNS management tool, that is a part of the in-house designed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It's going to provide you with a very simple interface to create a new record for each and every domain address hosted inside the account, so if you wish to use a domain name for any purpose, you can create a new SRV record with only a couple of clicks. Using simple text boxes, you will need to enter the service, protocol and port number info, which you ought to have from the company providing you with 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 standard value for them is 10, but you could set any other value between 1 and 100 when necessary. Additionally, you'll have the option to adjust the TTL value from the standard 3600 seconds to a various different value - thus setting the time this record will be live in the global DNS system after you delete it or modify it.
