What are SRV records? What precisely is their job in the Domain Name System?
An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to forward a domain to a third-party server and employ it for some service different from a website. This may be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so forth. When an SRV record is created, you could specify an Internet Protocol which the domain address will use and the port, which is to be used to connect to the remote server. Additionally, provided that you have numerous SRV records for the very same service, you'll be able to set different priorities and weights for every single one of them, so you can spread the load between a number of machines. Such a record will permit you to employ the same domain address or subdomains under it with different providers, so you're able to use it for different purposes even if you are not able to get all of the services from one provider.
SRV Records in Cloud Website Hosting
You'll be able to create a completely new SRV record for each of the domain names which you host inside a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you are able to manage them without difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record you set up is going to be active. Hepsia comes with a highly user-friendly interface and all it will require to create an SRV record is to fill in 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 default values, which you can leave except when the other company needs different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to stay active if you edit it or remove it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A new SRV record may be created in a matter of seconds for each and every domain name hosted within a semi-dedicated server
from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, used to control the semi-dedicated accounts, includes a rather easy-to-use interface, so you'll be able to set up any DNS record even when you have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you could set up records via the DNS management tool, which is an element of Hepsia and once you select SRV for the type, a few text boxes are going to appear. You have to type the service, port number and protocol information plus the record value in them and the new record is going to be live right after that. The priority and weight options may be set to any value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You'll be able to change any of the two in case the other provider has requested you to do so. Furthermore, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which reveals the duration a record is going to remain active if changed or removed, can also be modified from the default 3600 seconds.
