How to Link your Domain to your Minecraft Server

How to Link your Domain to your Minecraft Server


- Create an A record that actually points your domain to the server following this instruction.

In this case, use these values for your A record:

Host : @
Value: IP address of your Minecraft server
TTL: Automatic or 30 min <it's our default TTL>

- Once it is done, follow the steps described in this article to create an SRV record. It is needed when you are running a server on a custom port. 

The values to connect any bare domain (e.g. "humbleservers.com") to your Minecraft server are the following:

Service:  _minecraft
Protocol: _tcp
Priority: 0
Weight: 5 <If set to 0, port and weight would randomly switch, and break>
Port: [custom port]
Target: [your domain] <without subdomain, e.g. "humbleservers.com">
TTL: Automatic or 30 min <it's our default TTL>

IF YOU WANT YOUR DOMAIN LIKE PLAY.YOURDOMAIN.TLD INSTEAD OF YOURDOMAIN.TLD:

2) Mapping a subdomain (mc.yourdomain.tld or www.yourdomain.tld) to your Minecraft server (In the example below we will be doing mc.yourdomain.tld)

Let’s check how records should be changed to have the mc.humbleservers.com subdomain linked to the Minecraft server.

The A record set for the subdomain mc.humbleservers.com has the following values:

Host : mc
Value: IP address of your Minecraft server
TTL: Automatic or 30 min <it's our default TTL>

The SRV record should look as follows in this case:

Service:  _minecraft
Protocol: _tcp.mc
Priority: 0
Weight: 5 <If set to 0, port and weight would randomly switch, and break>
Port: [custom port]
Target: [your domain with the subdomain] <e.g. "mc.humbleservers.com">
TTL: Automatic or 30 min <it's our default TTL>
