|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 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.|
How to create an SRV 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 (in this example we'll be pointing play.myawesomeserver.com to our server's IP).
5. Enter your server IP address.
6. Click Add An A Record.
7. Click on Manage.
8. Click Add "SRV" Record under the Add Record button.
9. Fill in the fields with the following information:
Name: Should be the subdomain you want along with the protocol/service. In our case, it’s _minecraft._tcp. (it will autofill the rest of the domain once you go to the next text box). If you want to use yourdomain.com without a subdomain, just enter: _minecraft._tcp.
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. (ie., 25586, 25598, etc.)
Target: Enter play.myawesomeserver.com (this will be the same as what you created in step 4)
10. Click Add Record.
