Step by Step Guide on Creating an SRV Record for Minecraft Hosting

Step 1: Login to your DNS Control Panel

Login to your DNS provider's control panel. This will be where you purchased your domain name.

Step 2: Navigate to the DNS Management Section

From the control panel, navigate to the DNS management or DNS settings section.

Step 3: Create a New SRV Record

Look for an option to create a new DNS record. Select SRV Record from the list of options.

Step 4: Configure the SRV Record

You will need to input various pieces of information, including:

  • Service: Set this to "_minecraft"
  • Protocol: Set this to "_tcp"
  • Name: This is typically the subdomain you want to use for your Minecraft server, for example "play". If you want to use the root domain, you can leave this blank.
  • Priority: Set this to "0"
  • Weight: Set this to "5"
  • Port: This should be the port your Minecraft server is running on, usually "25565"
  • Target: This is the address of your server, which is typically the IP address of your server.

Step 5: Save the SRV Record

Once you've filled in all the necessary fields, save the SRV record. It may take some time for the changes to propagate across the internet.

Step 6: Verify the SRV Record

You can verify your SRV record by using an online SRV record lookup tool. Just input your domain and it should return the details of your SRV record.
