Note To be able to connect to your server using your domain, or a subdomain for it that you want you will have to create an SRV Record. Please note that this is only if your server does not have a dedicated IP. If your server does have a dedicated IP like our Premium Minecraft Servers or Budget Servers with dedicated IP add-on, you will have to create an A record instead. Please see that tutorial here. Please keep in mind that after this tutorial it might take a while for it to start working due to DNS needing to update.

How to create an SRV Record for Minecraft in the billing panel:
1. Log in to the billing panel here. 

2. Click Domains, then My Domains.


3.
Click the wrench icon next to the domain you wish to connect.


4. Select DNS Management under the Manage tab.


5. Click Add A New A Record.


6.
Fill in the prompted fields with the following information:
          Hostname - "myserver" (in this example we'll be pointing myserver.myawesomeserver.com to our server's IP)

          IPv4 Address - Your Minecraft server IP (do not include the port)
          TTL - "14400"


7. Click Add Record then select Manage SRV Records under the DNS Management panel.



8. 
Click Add A New SRV Record.


9. If you want something like play.yourdomain.com, mc.yourdomain.com, or factions.yourdomain.com to be used to connect to your server then following the steps below. If you prefer to have just your domain point to your server, skip to step 10.
         Service Record -Should be the subdomain you want along with the protocol/service. In our case, it’s _minecraft._tcp.play (do not forget to include _minecraft._tcp. before the subdomain you want)
         Full Target Name -
Enter myserver.yourdomain.com (Changing yourdomain.com for your domain name)
         TTL -
Use 14400. You can also use any other values if you know exactly what this is, and how to use it.
         Priority - 
Use 0. You can also use any other values if you know exactly what this is, and how to use it.
         Weight - 
Use 5. You can also use any other values if you know exactly what this is, and how to use it.
         Port -
 Your Minecraft server port (i.e., 25586, 25598, etc.)


10. Enter the following information if you want to connect to your server using your base domain:
        Service Record: Should be _minecraft._tcp
        Full Target Name: Enter myserver.yourdomain.com (this will be the same as what you created in step 6)
        TTL: Use 14400. You can also use any other values if you know exactly what this is, and how to use it.
        Priority: Use 0. You can also use any other values if you know exactly what this is, and how to use it.
        Weight: Use 5. You can also use any other values if you know exactly what this is, and how to use it.
        Port: This should be the port your server is running on. (i.e., 25586, 25598, etc.)


11. Click Add Record.
