An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to direct a domain to a third-party server and employ it for a service different from an Internet site. This could be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so on. When an SRV record is created, you are able to specify an Internet Protocol the domain name will use and the port, which is to be employed to connect to the remote server. Furthermore, if you have many SRV records for the exact same service, you could set individual priorities and weights for every one of them, so you're able to send out the load between several machines. Such a record allows you to employ the same domain address or subdomains under it with different companies, so you could employ it for various purposes even if you are not able to get all services from a single service provider.
SRV Records in Shared Web Hosting
If you host a domain in a shared web hosting account from our company and we control the DNS records for it, you'll be able to create a new SRV record with just a few clicks within the DNS Records area of your Hepsia CP. Our intuitive interface makes it much easier to create a new record compared with other hosting Control Panels, so if you want an SRV record, you'll simply need to fill a few boxes and you will be all set. This includes the protocol and the port number, the value i.e. the actual record, the priority and the weight. For the last two you can set any value in between 1 and 100 based upon which server you'd like customers to access first or what instructions the other provider has given you. As an extra option, you can pick how long this record will be active after you edit it or delete it - the so-called Time To Live time, that’s measured in seconds. If not requested otherwise, you could leave the default value there.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Setting up a completely new SRV record for each and every domain address hosted within a semi-dedicated server account on our end will be very easy and will take no more than just a few clicks via a user-friendly interface. Through the DNS management tool in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you can create any record that you need and as soon as you choose SRV as the type, several more textboxes will appear on your screen. There, you will need to enter the service, the protocol, the record value as well as the port number and you'll be set. Additionally, in case the other company requires it, you're also going to be able to set the weight and priority values if they have to be different from the default value, which is 10. The range for these 2 options is from 1 to 100, so you've got a lot of possibilities if you use a lot of servers for a particular service. You may also outline how long the new SRV record will remain live if you erase it in the future by setting a TTL (Time To Live) value for it. By default, the TTL is 3600 seconds.
