An SRV record, which is short for Service record, is a DNS entry employed to identify the servers which run a certain service for a domain name. Quite simply, you’ll be able to use your Internet domain not only for a website, but also for an instant messaging server, a video streaming host or perhaps a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, while you still have a site with it. Whenever you create the SRV record, you can choose what Internet Protocol it will employ, on which port the connection to the particular server is going to be established along with the priority and the weight of the record in case that you have several SRV records for the very same service. The second option will permit you to use different machines for load balancing and redundancy. With this type of DNS records, you may use the same domain address for a variety of purposes and even with different providers in case the same one can't provide all services you require.

SRV Records in Shared Website Hosting

You'll be able to create a brand new SRV record for any of the domain addresses you host within a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you are able to manage them without any difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record you set up will be active. Hepsia features a really user-friendly interface and all it takes to set up an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record is going to be used for, the Internet protocol and also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, that you can leave unless the other company demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to be active if you edit it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Setting up a brand new SRV record for each and every domain address hosted in a semi-dedicated server account on our end will be very easy and will require no more than just a few clicks via a user-friendly interface. Via the DNS management tool in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you are able to create any record that you need and once you pick SRV as the type, several more textboxes will appear on your screen. There, you'll have to enter the record value, the service, the protocol and the port number and you'll be set. Optionally, if the other service provider requires it, you're also going to be able to set the weight and priority values in case they have to be different from the standard value, which is 10. The range for those two options is from 1 to 100, so you've got a lot of possibilities if you use many servers for a particular service. You can also specify 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.
