Note 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 an 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.

How to create an A record for Minecraft in cPanel:
1. Log in to cPanel.

2. Under the Domains category, select Zone Editor.


3.
Next to any domain, click +A Record button.


4. Enter your subdomain of choice (Ex: play.myawesomeserver.com, join.myawesomeserver.com).


5. Enter your server IP address.


6. Click Add An A Record.
