In order 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 A Record. Please note that this is only if your server has a dedicated IP. If your server does not have a dedicated IP like our Budget Minecraft Servers, you will have to create a SRV 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.
1. Log into the cPanel2. Scroll down to the Domains section and click where it says Advanced Zone Editor.3. Select A as the record type.
4. If you want something like play.yourdomain.com, mc.yourdomain.com, factions.yourdomain.com to be used to connect to your server follow the steps below.
In this tutorial let’s say we want play.yourdomain.com pointed to your server's IP address.
Name: Should be the subdomain you want. In our case, we will type in play (it will autofill the rest of the domain once you go to the next text box) since we want play.yourdomain.com
TTL: Use 14400. You can also use any other values if you know exactly what this is, and how to use it.
Adress: Should be your server’s IP address.
After filling in the information click Add Record button.
5. You’re all set! You can now use your domain or subdomain you created to connect to your server. You will also see the record of it in your DNS info area.
