An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to redirect a domain to a third-party server and use it for some service different from a website. This may 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 could specify an Internet Protocol that the domain name will use and the port, which is to be used to connect to the remote server. Also, provided that you have many SRV records for the very same service, you are able to set different priorities and weights for each one of them, in order to send out the load between several machines. Such a record will allow you to employ the same domain name or subdomains under it with different providers, so you're able to use it for different purposes even if you are not able to get all the services from just one provider.
SRV Records in Website Hosting
You are going to be able to create a brand new SRV record for each of the domain addresses you host in a shared web hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you can manage them without any difficulty via the respective section of your Hepsia Control Panel and only minutes later any new record you set up is going to be active. Hepsia includes a rather user-friendly interface and all it will require to set up an SRV record is to fill in just 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 standard values, that you can leave unless of course the other company needs different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to stay active in case you edit it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

Furthermore, you're going to be able to select what priority and weight the record will have if you are planning to use a couple or more machines for the exact same service. The default value for them is 10, but you can set any other value between 1 and 100 if needed. Moreover, you will have the option to change the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to any other value - this way setting the time this record is going to be live in the global DNS system after you erase it or edit it.
