An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to forward a domain to a third-party server and employ it for some service different from an Internet site. This can be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and many others. When an SRV record is set up, you can specify an Internet Protocol which the domain will use and the port, that will be used to connect to the remote server. Additionally, provided that you have numerous SRV records for the exact same service, you could set different priorities and weights for each one of them, allowing you to distribute the load between many machines. Such a record will permit you to employ the same domain or subdomains under it with different companies, so you can employ it for many purposes even if you can't get all services from a single service provider.

SRV Records in Cloud Web Hosting

You're going to be able to create a completely new SRV record for any of the domain addresses which you host within a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them without difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record that you create is going to be active. Hepsia features a really user-friendly interface and all it will take 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 and the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, which you can leave unless of course the other company requires different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number reveals the time in seconds for the record to stay active if you modify it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
