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

Weight

Port

Target

Priority

TTL

_minecraft

5

25565

domain.tld

0

Default

Be sure to replace domain.tld with your actual domain name 😊

Point a subdomain

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

Name

Points to

TTL

subdomain

Server IP

Default

Make sure to replace subdomain and Server IP with actual values 😊

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

Name

Weight

Port

Target

Priority

TTL

_minecraft.subdomain

5

25565

domain.tld

0

Default

Make sure to replace subdomain and domain.tld with actual values 😊

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
