I bought a Domain i wanted to use as my ip address i want people to use to join. I have an A record set up on the domain i want people to use.
Points to: The ip address my server owns
TTL is 1 hour
Im aware people are suppose to use: Domain:Port but i feel like im doing something wrong? Posts that i read confuse me a little. So im hoping someone will dumb it out of what my DNS for my domain is suppose to have and how long i need to wait for it to update!
I found this article on pointing a domain registered at Go Daddy to a Minecraft server.
Not sure if this is right but i followed the instructions dispite not hosting from mcprohosting dont think that matters?
Does this look right?:
|SRV||_minecraft._tcp.@||0 0 29601 mc||1/2 Hour|
That was the most concise article I found, but it did not seem this was host specific.
Make sure the sub-domain is different for the A (Host) and SRV (Name) records, you would access it with the SRV record.
For the target on the SRV record use the sub-domain created with the A record, on the target side spell it out (subdomain.domain.com instead of just subdomain).
Yeah i noticed a value wasint actually inputting and renaming itself to @ or 0. I may have figured it out but again does this look right?:
Type Name Value TTL Actions
|SRV||_minecraft._tcp.mc||0 0 29601 mc.storytime-mcrr.com||1/2 Hour|
How long doe this take to update before i see it take effect if i done it right ?
Still doesint seem to be working and i game it time. Gonna asume i use mc."domain-name.com":29601, and iv tryed other combinations.
