An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to point a domain name to a third-party server and employ it for a service different from an Internet site. This can be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so on. When an SRV record is set up, you can specify an Internet Protocol which 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 very same service, you can set various priorities and weights for each one of them, allowing you to send out the load between several machines. Such a record will enable you to use the same domain name or subdomains under it with different providers, so you're able to use it for many purposes even if you cannot get all services from one service provider.

SRV Records in Cloud Hosting

You are going to be able to create a brand new SRV record for each of the domains you host inside a shared website hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Assuming that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you are able to manage them effortlessly through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and just minutes later any new record you set up is going to be active. Hepsia features a really intuitive interface and all it will take to create an SRV record is to fill in a few text boxes - the service the record is going to 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 when the other company demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to remain active when you change it or erase it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
