An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to direct a domain to a third-party server and employ it for some service different from a website. This could be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, etc. When an SRV record is created, you are able to specify an Internet Protocol the domain will use and the port, which is to be employed to connect to the remote server. Furthermore, if you have many SRV records for the exact same service, you could set individual priorities and weights for every single one of them, so that you can send out the load between a number of machines. Such a record will enable you to employ the same domain name or subdomains under it with different companies, so you could use it for different purposes even if you are not able to get all of the services from a single service provider.
SRV Records in Website Hosting
You're going to be able to set up a brand new SRV record for any one of the domain names which you host in a shared website hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without any difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and minutes later any new record which you set up will be active. Hepsia includes a very intuitive interface and all it requires to create an SRV record is to fill in just 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 standard values, that you can leave except if the other provider needs different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to remain active in case you modify it or remove it at some point, the default one being 3600.
