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 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 created, you can specify an Internet Protocol that the domain name will use and the port, which will be used to connect to the remote server. Moreover, if you have several SRV records for the exact same service, you can set various priorities and weights for every one of them, so you're able to distribute the load between a number of 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 various purposes even if you are unable to get all of the services from one service provider.

SRV Records in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia CP, provided with each and every cloud web hosting service we offer, gives you an easy means to set up any DNS record that you need for a domain name or a subdomain inside your account. The intuitive interface is simpler compared to what other companies offer and you won’t have to do anything more complicated than to fill just a few boxes. For a new SRV record, you will have to log in, go to the DNS Records section and then click the "New" button. Within the small pop-up which will appear, you have to input the service, protocol and port information. You may also set the priority and weight values, which should be between 1 and 100, that will matter if you have at least two servers handling the same service. If you use a machine from a different company, they could also require you to set a TTL value different from the default 3600 seconds. This value outlines how long the newly created record will remain functional after you modify it in the future.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Through a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you're going to be able to benefit from our easy to navigate DNS administration tool, which is a part of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP. It is going to give you a rather simple user interface to create a new record for every single domain address hosted within the account, so if you would like to use a domain for any purpose, you can create a completely new SRV record with only a few clicks. Using basic 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. Moreover, you're going to be able to pick what priority and weight the record will have if you are planning 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 needed. Additionally, you are going to have the option to adjust the TTL value from the standard 3600 seconds to any other value - in this way setting the time this record is going to be active in the global DNS system after you erase it or edit it.
