An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to direct a domain to a third-party server and use it for some service different from a website. 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 will use and the port, which will be used to connect to the remote server. Moreover, in case you have a few SRV records for the exact same service, you could set different priorities and weights for each and every one of them, in order to spread the load between a number of machines. Such a record will permit you to employ the same domain or subdomains under it with different companies, so you can employ it for different purposes even if you are not able to get all of the services from just one provider.

Hepsia includes a really intuitive interface and all it takes to set up an SRV record is to fill in just a few text boxes - the service the record is going to be used for, the Internet protocol plus the port number. The priority (1-100), weight (1-100) and TTL boxes have standard values, which you could leave unless the other company demands different ones. TTL stands short for Time To Live and this number illustrates the time in seconds for the record to stay active in case you edit it or remove it at some point, the default one being 3600.
