An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to forward a domain name to a third-party server and use it for a service different from an Internet site. This can be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so on. When an SRV record is set up, you are able to specify an Internet Protocol which the domain will use and the port, that will be used to connect to the remote server. Also, provided that you have many SRV records for the same service, you can set various priorities and weights for each and every one of them, so that you can distribute the load between several machines. Such a record allows you to use the same domain or subdomains under it with different providers, so you can employ it for many purposes even if you are not able to get all services from just one provider.
SRV Records in Hosting
You're going to be able to create a new SRV record for any of the domain names you host inside a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you are able to manage them without difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record that you set up will be active. Hepsia comes with a really user-friendly interface and all it will take to create an SRV record is to fill in a couple of text boxes - the service the record will be used for, the Internet protocol as well as the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, which you can leave except if the other provider requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to be active if you edit it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
By using a semi-dedicated server solution from us, you're going to be able to benefit from the easy to navigate DNS administration tool, which is a part of the in-house designed Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It is going to provide you with a quite simple interface to create a new record for each domain name hosted in the account, so if you need to use a domain for any purpose, you can set up a new SRV record with only a few clicks. Via very simple text boxes, you'll have to input the service, protocol and port number details, which you must have from the company providing you with the service. Furthermore, you will be able to choose what priority and weight the record will have if you're going to use a couple or more machines for the same service. The standard value for them is 10, but you may set any other value between 1 and 100 if required. Furthermore, you'll have the option to change the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to a various different value - thus setting the time this record is going to be live in the global DNS system after you erase it or change it.
