SRV Records in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a cloud hosting account with us and the DNS records for a domain address added in it are controlled by our system, you are going to be able to create any record that you need easily, including an SRV one. This is done with the user-friendly Hepsia CP and once you sign in to your website hosting account and check out the DNS Records section, you will only have to fill a few boxes with the needed info and your new SRV record will be active in a couple of hours. You can enter the service, protocol and the port number that you would like to use as well as the priority and the weight of the new record based upon how you want to set up your system or what the third-party provider needs. If required, you can even change the TTL (Time To Live) value for the record, which shows how long it's going to remain active after you change or remove it. The standard TTL value for the majority of records is 3600 seconds and you are able to leave it if you don't specifically need a different one.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since we know how frustrating it can be to deal with DNS records, we are going to present you with an easy-to-use DNS management instrument as part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, so when you host your domain addresses inside a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to set up an SRV record without troubles. We have a step-by-step guide, that'll make things even easier. Using an intuitive interface, you will need to enter the info that the other company has provided you with - protocol, port number and service. Unless they have given you specific directions to change the priority and / or the weight values, you can leave these two options as they are and your new record will go live within a matter of minutes. The Time To Live option (TTL) can also be set to a custom value, but usually the standard value of 3600 seconds is used for most records. This value shows the time the record will continue existing after it's modified or erased.
