An SRV record, which means Service record, is a DNS entry employed to identify the servers which run a specific service for a domain name. Basically, you will be able to use your domain not just for an Internet site, but also for an instant messaging server, a video streaming host or a Voice-Over-IP server, as an example, while you still have a site with it. Whenever you create the SRV record, you can pick what IP it is going to employ, on which port the connection to the particular server is going to be established plus the priority and the weight of the record assuming that there are several SRV records for the exact same service. The latter option will enable you to use different machines for load balancing and redundancy. Using this kind of DNS records, you may use the same domain name many different purposes and even with different providers if the same one can't provide all services you need.

You are going to be able to set up a completely new SRV record for any of the domain names that you host in a shared web hosting account on our groundbreaking cloud platform. Given that the DNS records for the domain 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 you set up will be active. Hepsia features a highly user-friendly interface and all it will require to create 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 and also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, which you could leave except when the other company needs different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number shows the time in seconds for the record to stay active in case you modify it or remove it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
