An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to redirect a domain to a third-party server and employ it for some service different from an Internet site. This may be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so on. When an SRV record is set up, you could specify an Internet Protocol which the domain name will use and the port, which is to be used to connect to the remote server. Additionally, provided that you have many SRV records for the exact same service, you'll be able to set various priorities and weights for every one of them, so you're able to spread the load between many machines. Such a record will permit you to use the same domain or subdomains under it with different providers, so you're able to use it for different purposes even if you cannot get all the services from a single service provider.
SRV Records in Web Hosting
You are going to be able to set up a brand new SRV record for any one of the domain addresses that you host within a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you are able to manage them without difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and just minutes later any new record you create will be active. Hepsia features a really user-friendly interface and all it will take to set up an SRV record is to fill in a couple of text boxes - the service the record is going to be used for, the Internet protocol and 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 requires different ones. TTL stands 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 default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
As we recognize how frustrating it can be to deal with DNS records, we are going to offer you an easy-to-use DNS administration instrument as part of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel, so if you host your domain addresses in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll be able to set up an SRV record with no difficulties. We have a step-by-step guide, that will make things so much easier. Using a user-friendly interface, you'll need to input the details that the other company has provided you with - protocol, port number and service. Unless they've given you specific directions to change the priority and the weight values, you could leave those two options as they are and your new record will go live within a matter of minutes. The Time To Live option (TTL) can also be set to a custom value, but normally the default value of 3600 seconds is used for most records. This value displays the time the record will continue existing after it is changed or erased.
