An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to point a domain name to a third-party server and employ it for a service different from an Internet 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 created, you can specify an Internet Protocol that the domain will use and the port, which is to be used to connect to the remote server. Additionally, if you have a few SRV records for the same service, you could set various priorities and weights for every single one of them, so that you can send out the load between several machines. Such a record will allow you to employ the same domain address or subdomains under it with different companies, so you're able to employ it for various purposes even if you are unable to get all the services from just one provider.

SRV Records in Shared Hosting

You're going to be able to create a completely new SRV record for each of the domains you host in a shared web hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you can manage them effortlessly in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record that you set up will be active. Hepsia features a really user-friendly interface and all it requires 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 as well as the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, that you can leave unless the other provider needs different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number shows the time in seconds for the record to be active in case you modify it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
