An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to redirect a domain to a third-party server and use it for a service different from a website. This could be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and many others. When an SRV record is set up, you could specify an Internet Protocol the domain name will use and the port, which will be employed to connect to the remote server. Furthermore, provided that you have several SRV records for the exact same service, you are able to set different priorities and weights for every single one of them, allowing you to spread the load between several machines. Such a record allows you to employ the same domain or subdomains under it with different companies, so you could employ it for different purposes even if you cannot get all services from just one service provider.

SRV Records in Web Hosting

You will be able to set up a completely new SRV record for any one of the domains you host in a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you are able to manage them without any difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record you create will be active. Hepsia includes a highly intuitive interface and all it requires to create an SRV record is to fill in just a few text boxes - the service the record will be used for, the Internet protocol plus the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, that you can leave except if the other provider demands different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to remain active when you edit it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

A completely new SRV record can be created within just seconds for every single domain hosted inside a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, employed to handle the semi-dedicated accounts, features a rather easy-to-use interface, so you'll be able to set up any DNS record although you may have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you'll be able to set up records through the DNS management tool, which is an element of Hepsia and once you select SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You need to enter the service, port number and protocol details plus the record value in them and the new record will be active soon after that. The priority and weight options can be set to every value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You are able to adjust any of the two in case the other company has asked you to do so. Also, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which indicates the duration a record is going to remain functioning if edited or deleted, could also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
