An SRV record, which stands for Service record, is a DNS entry employed to define the servers which run a specific service for a domain name. Basically, you will be able to use your Internet domain not just for an Internet site, but also for an instant messaging server, a video streaming host or perhaps a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, while you still have a site with it. If you create the SRV record, you can pick what Internet Protocol it's going to use, on which port the connection to the specific server is going to be established along with the priority and the weight of the record in case that there are several SRV records for the very same service. The latter option will permit you to employ different machines for load balancing and redundancy. Using this type of DNS records, you may use the same domain for a variety of purposes and even with different providers in case the same one is unable to provide all services that you need.

SRV Records in Shared Website Hosting

You're going to be able to create a completely new SRV record for any one of the domains that you host within a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them with ease via the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record which you create is going to be active. Hepsia includes 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 will be used for, the Internet protocol and also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, which you could leave unless the other company demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to be active in case you modify it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

A brand new SRV record can be created in a matter of seconds for each domain name hosted in a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts, comes with a really easy-to-use interface, so you'll be able to create any DNS record even though you may have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you may create records using the DNS administration tool, which is a part of Hepsia and once you select SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You have to enter the service, port number and protocol information as well as the record value in them and the new record is going to be active right after that. The priority and weight options can be set to every value between 1 and 100, the default one being 10. You can adjust any one of the two in case the other company has requested you to do so. Furthermore, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which indicates the duration a record will remain live if changed or deleted, may also be modified from the default 3600 seconds.
