An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to point a domain to a third-party server and employ it for some service different from a website. This can 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 the domain will use and the port, which will be used to connect to the remote server. Additionally, in case you have many SRV records for the very same service, you can set various priorities and weights for every one of them, so that you can spread the load between many machines. Such a record will enable you to employ the same domain or subdomains under it with different providers, so you're able to employ it for different purposes even if you are unable to get all services from a single provider.

You're going to be able to set up a completely new SRV record for any of the domain addresses you host inside a shared web hosting account on our innovative cloud platform. Provided that the DNS records for the domain name are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them effortlessly through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and only minutes later any new record which you set up is going to be active. Hepsia comes with a rather user-friendly interface and all it will take to set up 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 when the other company demands different ones. TTL is short for Time To Live and this number indicates the time in seconds for the record to remain active in case you modify it or erase it at some point, the default one being 3600.
