DNS SRV Record

Can anyone assist with this issue?

I need to create a DNS SRV record for my EXCHANGE 2016 Server with the company that host our domain name (bigcommerce.com), however they don't allow SRV record creation in the DNS portal only TXT records.

Sample SRV Record
Is there anyway to create the SRV record using the TXT record option they allow?

Why do you need the SRV record? Can you just setup autodiscover.domain.com CNAME that points to mail.domain.com? Requires a SAN cert on your Exchange server.

If they do not provide SRV records change DNS provider. If they do not provide web gui for you, they can always add it manually to zone file.
It looks like this:

somedomainname.com. 3600      SRV        100 1 5061 sipfed.online.lync.com.

We had the same issue with ATT a long time ago. Have you tried contacting the hosting company to see if they can add SRV records for you. When we asked ATT, it was a simple matter of sending them the info
