An SRV record, which stands for Service record, is a DNS entry that is used to outline the servers that run a specific service for a domain. Basically, you’re able to use your Internet domain not only for a web site, but also for an instant messaging server, a video streaming host or a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, while you still have an Internet site with it. When you create the SRV record, you can pick what IP it is going to use, on which port the connection to the specific server is going to be established in addition to the priority and the weight of the record assuming that you have a number of SRV records for the exact same service. The second option will enable you to employ different machines for load balancing and redundancy. Using this type of DNS records, you could use the same domain for a number of purposes and even with different companies if the same one cannot provide all services you need.
SRV Records in Shared Hosting
You're going to be able to create a new SRV record for any one of the domains which you host in a shared web hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them with ease through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record that you create will be active. Hepsia comes with a highly intuitive interface and all it will take 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 also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you can leave unless of course the other company demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to stay active in case you edit it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
A brand new SRV record can be created in a matter of seconds for each and every domain hosted in a semi-dedicated server from our company. The Hepsia hosting CP, used to control the semi-dedicated accounts, includes a very easy-to-use interface, so you will be able to create any DNS record even if you have no previous experience with such matters. After you sign in to the account, you are able to set up records via the DNS administration tool, which is a part of Hepsia and once you choose SRV for the type, a few text boxes will appear. You need to enter the service, port number and protocol information as well as the record value in them and the new record is going to be operational shortly after that. The priority and weight options may be set to any value between 1 and 100, the standard one being 10. You could adjust each of the two if the other company has requested you to do so. Moreover, the Time To Live (TTL) value, which reveals the duration a record is going to remain live if changed or erased, can also be modified from the standard 3600 seconds.
