Create or edit SRV host records for a domain name.


Use this command to create or edit SRV (service) records for a domain name.

This command deletes all previously existing SRV records for the domain name. You must include all SRV records that you want to end up with, in the query string.

SRV records are required for some newer Internet protocols such as SIP and XMPP. Some other protocols support, but do not require, SRV records.

This command allows a user to supply the components of an SRV record that are discretionary, then adds TTL, Class, and formatting to produce a complete SRV record.


All resellers have access to this command.
