Creating SRV Record for Minecraft in billing panel

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 addon, 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.

1. In the billing area, click on Domains and then My Domains.

2. Now click Manage Domains next to the domain you want to make a change to.

3. Now click on Management Tools and then Manage DNS.


4. Now click on Manage SRV Records in the DNS Management box on the left-hand side.


5. Click Add A New SRV Record button.


6. 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.

If you want just yourdomain.com to point to your server instead, and not a subdomain, skip to Step 7.

In this tutorial let’s say we want play.yourdomain.com
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: You can get this here. Just enter your server's IP address and click Search to get the target 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: This should be the port your server is running on. (i.e., 25586, 25598, etc.)

After filling in the information click Add Record button.

7. If you just want your domain to point to your server’s IP use the info below.

Service Record: Should be _minecraft._tcp
Full Target Name: You can get this here. Just enter your server's IP address and click Search to get the target 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: This should be the port your server is running on. (i.e., 25586, 25598, etc.)

After filling in the information click Add Record button.

8. 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.
