An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to direct a domain to a third-party server and use it for a service different from a 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 address will use and the port, which will be used to connect to the remote server. In addition, if you have a few SRV records for the same service, you can set various priorities and weights for each one of them, so that you can distribute the load between several machines. Such a record allows you to employ the same domain name or subdomains under it with different providers, so you're able to employ it for many purposes even if you can't get all the services from a single provider.
SRV Records in Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to create a completely new SRV record for any of the domain addresses that you host in a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you are able to manage them with ease through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record you create is going to be active. Hepsia features a very intuitive interface and all it will take to set up an SRV record is to fill in just a few 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 default values, that you can leave except if the other company demands different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to be active when you edit it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As we acknowledge how irritating it can be to deal with DNS records, we'll offer you an easy-to-use DNS administration instrument as a part of our custom Hepsia CP, so when you host your domain names within a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to set up an SRV record without any difficulties. We've got a step-by-step guide, that'll make things that much easier. Using an intuitive interface, you'll need to type in the info that the other company has supplied you with - protocol, port number and service. Unless they've given you specific directions to modify the priority and the weight values, you could leave these two options as they are and your brand new record will go live within a few minutes. The Time To Live option (TTL) could also be set to a custom value, but usually the default value of 3600 seconds is used for almost all records. This value shows the time the record will keep existing after it is modified or removed.
