How to add SRV record for a domain via cPanel WHM?
« on: November 16, 2014, 01:11:17 PM »
Hello Guys,

A SRV record or Service record is a spec of data in the Domain Name System defines the location, i.e. the hostname and port number, of servers for specialized services.

An SRV record has the form:
----------
_service._proto.name TTL class SRV priority weight port hostname
----------

* service: the symbolic name of the desired service.
* proto: the transport protocol of the desired service; this is usually either TCP or UDP.
* name: the domain name for which this record is valid.
* TTL: standard DNS time to live field.
* class: standard DNS class field (this is always IN).
* priority: the priority of the target host, lower value means more preferred.
* weight: A relative weight for records with the same priority.
* port: the TCP or UDP port on which the service is to be found.
* hostname: the canonical hostname of the machine providing the service.

To add the SRV record for a domain via cPanel WHM, please follow the steps below:

1) Login to WHM.
2) Go to 'DNS Functions >> Edit DNS Zone'
3) Select the domain for which you wish to add the SRV record.
4) Select 'SRV' from the drop down.
5) Enter the first column with the '_service._proto.name'

You will be also need to set the following fields:

Priority
Weight
Port
Hostname

Once you fill the field click on save button. That's all.

Enjoy!!
