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

SRV Records in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to set up a completely new SRV record for each of the domain names 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 are able to manage them without any difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and just minutes later any new record you create will be active. Hepsia includes a very 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 also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you could leave unless the other company needs different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to stay active when you change it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A brand new SRV record could be created within seconds for each and every domain name hosted in a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts, features a rather easy-to-use interface, so you will be able to create any DNS record even if you have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you are able to create records through the DNS management tool, which is a part of Hepsia and once you pick SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You have to input the service, port number and protocol details plus the record value in them and the new record will be live right after that. The priority and weight options can be set to any value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You may adjust any one of the two in case the other company has required you to do so. Furthermore, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which reveals the duration a record will remain live if edited or erased, may also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
