Pointing a domain to your Minecraft server is a great way of replacing IP address with a domain or subdomain for logging in to your server.

Point a domain

You can point your domain to VPS by either creating two A records or one A and CNAME records. Once these records are created you will need to create such SRV record:

Name: _minecraft

Weight: 5

Port: 25565

Target: domain.tld (be sure to replace with your actual domain name)

Priority: 0

TTL: default

Point a subdomain

In order to point a subdomain you will need to create one A record:

Name: subdomain (for example when pointing subdomain.domain.tld)

Points to: server IP

TTL: default

Once this record is created you will need to create such SRV record:

Name: _minecraft.subdomain

Weight: 5

Port: 25565

Target: domain.tld (be sure to replace with your actual domain name)

Priority: 0

TTL: default

NOTES:

  • Depending on your DNS Zone provider, it may be necessary to specify a protocol for SRV record. In that case, set it as “_tcp” without the quotation marks

  • You may create multiple instances with Game Panel, so the port will differ depending on the instance you wish to point a domain/subdomain to
