An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to direct a domain name to a third-party server and use it for a 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 set up, you are able to specify an Internet Protocol the domain will use and the port, which will be employed to connect to the remote server. In addition, in case you have numerous SRV records for the same service, you could set different priorities and weights for every one of them, so you're able to spread the load between a number of machines. Such a record allows you to employ the same domain name or subdomains under it with different companies, so you're able to use it for many purposes even if you are unable to get all of the services from one provider.

SRV Records in Shared Hosting

You're going to be able to create a completely new SRV record for each of the domain addresses that you host in a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them effortlessly in the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and minutes later any new record you create will be active. Hepsia comes with a really intuitive interface and all it takes 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 standard values, which you can leave unless of course the other company needs different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to stay active in case you modify it or remove it at some point, the default one being 3600.

In addition, you will be able to choose what priority and weight the record will have if you are planning to use a couple or more machines for the very same service. The default value for them is 10, but you can set any other value between 1 and 100 when necessary. Furthermore, you are going to have the option to adjust the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to any other value - in this way setting the time this record will be active in the global DNS system after you erase it or change it.
