An SRV record is a DNS record, which 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 so on. When an SRV record is set up, you can specify an Internet Protocol that the domain name will use and the port, which is to be employed to connect to the remote server. Furthermore, provided that you have several SRV records for the same service, you are able to set different priorities and weights for each one of them, so that you can spread the load between several machines. Such a record allows you to employ the same domain address or subdomains under it with different providers, so you're able to employ it for different purposes even if you cannot get all the services from just one service provider.
SRV Records in Shared Hosting
You're going to be able to set up a completely new SRV record for any of the domains which you host within a shared website hosting account on our revolutionary cloud platform. As long as the DNS records for the domain are handled on our end, you will be able to manage them without any difficulty through the respective section of your Hepsia CP and minutes later any new record you set up is going to be active. Hepsia features a very intuitive interface and all it will take to set up an SRV record is to fill in just a few text boxes - the service the record will be used for, the Internet protocol and also the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have default values, that you can leave unless 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 when you change it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.

The default value for them is 10, but you can set any other value between 1 and 100 if needed. Moreover, you are going to have the option to change the TTL value from the default 3600 seconds to a various different value - in this way setting the time this record is going to be active in the global DNS system after you erase it or modify it.
