ServicePointManager is a static class used to create, maintain, and delete instances of the ServicePoint class.

When an application requests a connection to an Internet resource Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) through the ServicePointManager object, the ServicePointManager returns a ServicePoint object that contains connection information for the host identified by the URI. If there is an existing ServicePoint object for that host, the ServicePointManager object returns the existing ServicePoint object; otherwise, the ServicePointManager object creates a new ServicePoint object.

The following code example creates a ServicePoint object for connections to the URI

Uri^ myUri = gcnew Uri( "" );
ServicePoint^ mySP = ServicePointManager::FindServicePoint( myUri );

Uri myUri = new Uri("");
ServicePoint mySP = ServicePointManager.FindServicePoint(myUri);
