SRV Records in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with each and every Linux shared website hosting that we offer, gives you an easy means to create any DNS record you need for a domain or a subdomain within your account. The intuitive interface is simpler in comparison with what other companies provide and you'll not have to do anything more complex than to fill a couple of boxes. For a new SRV record, you will need to sign in, navigate to the DNS Records section and click on the "New" button. Inside the small pop-up that will appear, you have to input the service, protocol and port details. You may also set the priority and weight values, which should be between 1 and 100, that will make a difference if you have no less than a couple of servers managing the very same service. If you work with a machine from a different provider, they could also ask you to set a TTL value different from the standard 3600 seconds. This value determines how long the newly created record will remain functional after you modify it in the future.
SRV Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
As we acknowledge how irritating it may be to handle DNS records, we'll give you an easy-to-use DNS administration instrument as an element of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, so if you host your domains inside a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will be able to create an SRV record with no problems. We've got a step-by-step guide, which will make things much easier. Using a user-friendly interface, you'll need to enter the info that the other company has supplied you with - protocol, port number and service. Unless they have given you specific recommendations to modify the priority and / or the weight values, you could leave these two options as they are and your new record will go live in a matter of minutes. The Time To Live option (TTL) could also be set to a custom value, but typically the default value of 3600 seconds is used for almost all records. This value shows the time the record will keep existing after it's changed or deleted.
