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 an Internet site. This could be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and many others. When an SRV record is created, you can specify an Internet Protocol that the domain address will use and the port, that will be employed to connect to the remote server. Furthermore, provided that you have numerous SRV records for the exact same service, you could set different priorities and weights for each one of them, in order to send out the load between a number of machines. Such a record will permit you to employ the same domain or subdomains under it with different companies, so you could employ it for various purposes even if you can't get all of the services from one provider.

You will be able to set up a brand new SRV record for any one of the domain addresses which you host within a shared web hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you’ll be able to manage them without difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and just minutes later any new record that you create will be active. Hepsia includes a rather intuitive interface and all it will require to create an SRV record is to fill in a couple of text boxes - the service the record is going to 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 except if the other provider requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number shows the time in seconds for the record to remain active when you edit it or erase it at some point, the default one being 3600.
