How to Add and Update SRV Records

An SRV Record (Service Record) is a resource record in the Domain Name System (DNS) that indicates the location of a service using a specific destination port number and hostname. Using the SRV Record, we can move services such as VOIP or IM, from host to host easily.

To create a SRV Record for your domain name you will need Premium DNS, which is a DNS cloud hosting service fully loaded with DNS hosting management tools.

Note: For UK users, SRV Records and all other Premium DNS features are granted for every domain registration without the need to upgrade, as per Registry policies.

Creating SRV Records

You can create SRV Records easily, within your Account Manager, by following these steps:

  1. Click Sign Up / Log In at the top of this page.
  2. Select Account Manager from the drop-down menu.

  4. Click on the Visit My Account button.
  5. Click Domains on the menu bar at the top of the page.
  6. Click the Domain Name that you wish to manage.
    If you only have one domain, you will automatically be redirected to its management page.
  7. Scroll down to the DNS Settings section, click the Hamburger Menu on the right and select Add Record.

  9. Enter the Sub Domain if necessary, then set the following in their corresponding fields:

    • Priority number - the lower the number, the higher the priority
    • Weight number of the target host - the higher the number, the higher the weight
    • Port of the service
    • Target - the domain name of the target host
  10. Click Update.

Congratulations! You just updated your SRV Records.
