An SRV record, which is short for Service record, is a DNS entry that is used to define the servers that run a particular service for a domain. Put simply, you will be able to use your domain name not just for an Internet site, but also for an instant messaging server, a video streaming host or even a Voice-Over-IP server, as an example, while you still have an Internet site with it. If you create the SRV record, you may choose what Internet Protocol it'll use, on which port the connection to the specific server will be established plus the priority and the weight of the record in case that there are several SRV records for the exact same service. The second option will enable you to use different machines for load balancing and redundancy. With this kind 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 you need.

SRV Records in Shared Website Hosting

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

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Through a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to use the user-friendly DNS administration tool, which is a part of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP. It's going to offer you a quite simple user interface to set up a new record for each domain hosted inside the account, so if you want to use a domain for any purpose, you can create a brand new SRV record with a couple of mouse clicks. Using very simple text boxes, you'll have to input the service, protocol and port number information, which you should have from the company offering you the service. Additionally, you will be able to select what priority and weight the record will have if you are going to use a couple or more machines for the same service. The standard value for them is 10, but you may set any other value between 1 and 100 if required. Additionally, you'll have the option to adjust the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to any other value - thus setting the time this record is going to be active in the global DNS system after you erase it or modify it.
