An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to forward a domain to a third-party server and employ it for a 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 created, you can specify an Internet Protocol which the domain name will use and the port, which will be employed to connect to the remote server. Additionally, provided that you have several SRV records for the exact same service, you could set individual priorities and weights for each and every one of them, so that you can send out the load between several machines. Such a record will permit you to use the same domain or subdomains under it with different companies, so you could employ it for various purposes even if you are unable to get all of the services from just one provider.
SRV Records in Website Hosting
If you host a domain address inside a website hosting account from our company and we control the DNS records for it, you'll be able to set up a new SRV record with just a few mouse clicks within the DNS Records area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Our easy to navigate interface makes it more simple to set up a new record compared to other website hosting Control Panels, so if you want an SRV record, you'll only have to fill a few boxes and you will be set. This includes the protocol and the port number, the value i.e. the actual record, the priority plus the weight. For the last 2 you could set any value in between 1 and 100 depending on which server you want users to access first or what instructions the other company has given you. As an additional option, you can pick how long this record is going to be active after you change it or delete it - the so-called Time To Live time, which is measured in seconds. If not requested otherwise, you may leave the default value there.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
A completely new SRV record can be created within just seconds for each domain hosted in a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, which is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts, features a really easy-to-use interface, so you'll be able to create any DNS record even when you have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you could create records via the DNS management tool, which is an element of Hepsia and once you pick SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You have to enter the service, port number and protocol details in addition to the record value in them and the new record is going to be live soon after that. The priority and weight options may be set to any value between 1 and 100, the default one being 10. You may adjust any of the two in case the other company has requested you to do so. Furthermore, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which reveals the duration a record is going to remain live if changed or removed, may also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
