An SRV record is a DNS record, which is used to forward a domain to a third-party server and use it for some service different from a site. This may be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, and so forth. When an SRV record is set up, you can specify an Internet Protocol that the domain name will use and the port, which will be used to connect to the remote server. Furthermore, provided that you have numerous SRV records for the very same service, you can set individual priorities and weights for each and every one of them, in order to distribute the load between a number of machines. Such a record will enable you to employ the same domain address or subdomains under it with different companies, so you could employ it for different purposes even if you are not able to get all the services from a single service provider.

Provided that the DNS records for the domain address are handled on our end, you can manage them without difficulty in the respective section of your Hepsia CP and just minutes later any new record which you set up will be active. Hepsia comes with a highly intuitive 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 will 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 provider demands 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 change it or delete it at some point, the standard one being 3600.
