An SRV record, which stands for Service record, is a DNS entry which is used to define the servers which run a certain service for a domain name. Basically, you’re able to use your Internet domain not just for a 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. Whenever you create the SRV record, you may choose what Internet Protocol it'll employ, on which port the connection to the specific server is going to be established plus the priority and the weight of the record provided that there are several SRV records for the exact same service. The second option will permit you to use different machines for load balancing and redundancy. With this kind of DNS records, you could use the same domain name for various purposes and even with different companies in case the same one is not able to provide all services you require.
SRV Records in Shared Hosting
You will be able to create a new SRV record for each of the domain addresses that you host inside a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you can manage them with ease through the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and minutes later any new record you set up will be active. Hepsia includes a rather intuitive 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 plus the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, that you can leave unless of course the other provider needs different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to remain active if you modify it or erase it at some point, the default one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
A new SRV record can be created within seconds for every single domain name hosted in a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, employed 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 create records through the DNS management tool, which is part of Hepsia and once you choose SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You have to enter the service, port number and protocol information along with the record value in them and the new record is going to be operational shortly after that. The priority and weight options can be set to any value between 1 and 100, the default one being 10. You'll be able to change any one of the two if the other provider has required you to do so. Also, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which indicates the duration a record is going to remain functioning if changed or deleted, could also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
