An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to point a domain to a third-party server and use it for some service different from a website. This could be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so on. When an SRV record is created, you are able to specify an Internet Protocol which the domain will use and the port, that will be employed to connect to the remote server. Additionally, if you have many SRV records for the exact same service, you'll be able to set various priorities and weights for every one of them, so you can spread the load between several machines. Such a record allows you to employ the same domain address or subdomains under it with different companies, so you could use it for many purposes even if you are unable to get all of the services from one service provider.

SRV Records in Hosting

You're going to be able to set up a brand new SRV record for any of the domains you host inside a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge 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 only minutes later any new record you create is going to be active. Hepsia features a really intuitive interface and all it will require 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 can leave unless the other company demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to be active when you change it or delete it at some point, the default one being 3600.
