An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to forward 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 could specify an Internet Protocol the domain name will use and the port, which is to be employed to connect to the remote server. Also, in case you have numerous SRV records for the exact same service, you could set different priorities and weights for every one of them, so you're able to send out the load between several machines. Such a record will allow you to use the same domain name or subdomains under it with different companies, so you can employ it for various purposes even if you cannot get all services from one service provider.

SRV Records in Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company and we control the DNS records for it, you are going to be able to set up a new SRV record with a few clicks inside the DNS Records area of your Hepsia CP. Our easy to work with interface makes it much simpler to create a new record in comparison to other hosting Control Panels, so if you require an SRV record, you'll only have to fill a couple of boxes and you'll be set. This includes the protocol and the port number, the value i.e. the actual record, the priority plus the weight. For the last 2 you may set any value in between 1 and 100 based on which server you want clients to access first or what instructions the other provider has given you. As an additional option, you may choose how long this record will be active after you modify it or delete it - the so-called Time To Live time, which is measured in seconds. If not requested otherwise, you may leave the default value there.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Through a semi-dedicated server package from us, you're going to be able to take advantage of our easy to work with DNS administration tool, that is a part of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. It will give you a simple user interface to set up a new record for any domain address hosted inside the account, so if you would like to use a domain address for any purpose, you can create a brand new SRV record with just a couple of clicks. Using simple text boxes, you will need to input the service, protocol and port number details, which you must have from the company providing you the service. In addition, you will be able to select what priority and weight the record will have if you intend to use a couple or more machines for the exact same service. The standard value for them is 10, but you could set any other value between 1 and 100 if required. In addition, you'll have the option to adjust the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to any other value - in this way setting the time this record is going to be live in the global DNS system after you delete it or change it.
