An SRV record, which signifies Service record, is a DNS entry which is used to outline the servers that run a particular service for a domain. Quite simply, you will be able to use your domain not only for a web site, but also for an instant messaging server, a video streaming host or even a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, while you still have a website with it. When you set up the SRV record, you can select what Internet Protocol it will employ, on which port the connection to the particular server will be established along with the priority and the weight of the record in case that you have several SRV records for the exact same service. The latter option will allow you to employ different machines for load balancing and redundancy. Using this kind of DNS records, you can use the same domain for a variety of purposes and even with different companies if the same one is unable to provide all services you need.

SRV Records in Cloud Web Hosting

You're going to be able to create a completely new SRV record for any of the domains that you host in a shared website hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you are able to manage them without difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record that you create is going to be active. Hepsia comes with a very intuitive interface and all it will require to create an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record is going to be used for, the Internet protocol as well as the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, that you can leave unless the other company requires different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to remain active if you change it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A new SRV record could be created within just seconds for each and every domain name hosted in a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, employed to handle the semi-dedicated accounts, comes with a rather easy-to-use interface, so you will be able to set up any DNS record although you may have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you could set up records through the DNS management tool, which is part of Hepsia and once you select SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You need to input the service, port number and protocol details plus the record value in them and the new record is going to be live soon after that. The priority and weight options could be set to any value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You are able to change any of the two if the other company has asked you to do so. In addition, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which indicates the duration a record is going to remain working if changed or removed, could also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
