SRV Records in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting account with our company and the DNS records for a domain address included in it are controlled by our system, you will be able to create any record that you need without difficulty, including an SRV one. This is done via the user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel and once you sign in to your hosting account and go to the DNS Records section, you'll simply have to fill a couple of boxes with the needed info and your new SRV record is going to be active in a few hours. You can type in the service, protocol and the port number you'd like to use as well as the priority and the weight of the new record depending on how you would like to set up your system or what the third-party provider needs. If needed, you can even edit the TTL (Time To Live) value for the record, which reveals how long it's going to remain active after you modify or erase it. The default TTL value for most records is 3600 seconds and you will be able to leave it if you do not specifically need a different one.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Setting up a new SRV record for any domain address hosted within a semi-dedicated server account on our end will be very easy and will require no more than a few mouse clicks via a user-friendly interface. Using the DNS management tool in your Hepsia hosting CP, you can create any record that you need and when you pick SRV as the type, several more textboxes will appear on your screen. There, you will have to type in the record value, the service, the protocol as well as the port number and you will be all set. Furthermore, in case the other service provider requires it, you are also going to be able to set the weight and priority values when they have to be different from the standard value, which is 10. The range for those 2 options is from 1 to 100, so you have a number of possibilities if you use a large number of servers for a given service. You could also outline how long the newly created SRV record will remain active in case you delete it in the future by setting a TTL (Time To Live) value for it. By default, the TTL is 3600 seconds.
