How to connect domain with Minecraft server
We often get questions about how to link the purchased domain to a Minecraft server and make the IP address much more attractive and easier to remember for your server visitors. While the process is straightforward, it can often be confusing for those who have never done it. Therefore, this tutorial should help both beginners and those who know how to do it but want to remember what DNS records are needed.
Where to find information for DNS records?
Go to Minecraft server Control panel and in the main tab, you will find all the crucial information. From this tab you only need IP (real), with it you can generate and add all the necessary DNS records.
Where to enter the DNS records?
After purchasing the domain waiting for it to become activated, go to the DNS management section of the domain and you will find 3 fields at the very bottom: Name, Type, Value. Here, enter the DNS records that will be generated by the generator.
DNS record generator
IP = Server numerical IP (e.x: 192.168.0.1)
PORT = Numbers after the numerical IP (e.x: xxx.xxx.x.x:25565)
Beginning = Beginning we want to add to the IP (e.x: play.domain.com)
P.S Once you add these 3 DNS records, it usually takes up to 24 hours to get everything synced with global DNS servers, so the domain you created for the Minecraft server may not work for some players for a while.
Playing Minecraft can be a great and rewarding experience, regardless of your age, and having your own server will help you enjoy the game with your friends. Knowing how to reach the full potential of your server will help you build a strong and cohesive server community.
