An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to redirect a domain name to a third-party server and employ it for some service different from a web site. This may be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so forth. When an SRV record is set up, you could specify an Internet Protocol that the domain will use and the port, which is to be employed to connect to the remote server. Furthermore, if you have numerous SRV records for the same service, you are able to set different priorities and weights for each and every one of them, allowing you to spread the load between a number of machines. Such a record allows you to employ the same domain address or subdomains under it with different providers, so you're able to use it for various purposes even if you are unable to get all the services from a single provider.

SRV Records in Website Hosting

You will be able to create a completely new SRV record for each of the domains which you host inside a shared website hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you are able to manage them with ease through the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record that you set up is going to be active. Hepsia features a highly user-friendly interface and all it will take to set up 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 default values, which you can leave except if the other company demands different ones. TTL is 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 standard one being 3600.
