How to create an SRV record

An SRV record provides information about web based services and is most commonly used for SIP services. SRV records use a special naming scheme which includes the service, the protocol, and the name of the domain.

Example: _sip._tcp.goosehollow.design. would be the SRV record for SIP requests for “goosehollow.design”.
