Edit an SRV record

Edit you SRV (Service) records in your DNS zone file to change the settings used to identify computers that host specific services, such as FTP, telephony or instant messaging.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy Domain Control Center. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
  2. Select your domain to access the Domain Settings page.
    select domain
  3. Select Manage DNS under Additional Settings.
  4. Select Edit next to the SRV record you're editing.
  5. Edit the details for your SRV record:
    • Service: The service name of this SRV record. The name should begin with an underscore, such as _ldap, _ftp or _smtp.
    • Protocol: The protocol the service uses. The name should begin with an underscore, such as _tcp or _udp.
    • Name: The host name for the record. Type @ to put the SRV record on your root domain.
    • Value: The host name of the machine providing the service, such as host.example.com.
    • Priority: The priority for the SRV record. For multiple records that have the same Name and Service, the priority number determines which Value to contact first.
    • Weight: The weight of the SRV record. For multiple records that have the same Name, Service and Priority, the weight value determines how often one Value is chosen relative to others.
    • Port: The port number for the service, such as 80 or 21.
    • TTL: How long the server should cache information. The default setting is 1 hour.
  6. Select Save to complete your changes.

Most DNS updates take effect within an hour, but could take up to 48 hours to update globally.
