Configuration

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account
  2. Click Add New Record. The Add DNS Record window displays.
  3. From the Record type list, select SRV (Service), if you wish to run multiple instances on a single CreeperHost service, select "CNAME" if you do not plan to do so.

CNAME (Single instance):

 

  • Target: [address]
    • Enter the address (without the port) of your server - for example, just myawesomeserver.playat.ch

SRV (Multiple instances):

In the fields, fill out the settings as follows:

  • Service: _minecraft
  • Protocol: tcp
  • Name: [subdomain]
    • This is the subdomain you'll use for connecting to your server. For example, if your domain is example.com, and you wish to connect via play.example.com, you would enter just play in the field. If you wish to connect directly using example.com, you would enter @ in the field.
  • Priority: 0
  • Weight: 0
  • Port: [port]
    • Enter the port number of your Minecraft instance - if your full server address is myawesomeserver.playat.ch:25565, you would enter just 25565
  • Target: [address]
    • Enter the address (without the port) of your server - for example, just myawesomeserver.playat.ch

Save your settings, and you're done! Please note that it can take up to 72 hours for the DNS information to propagate, meaning you may not be able to connect to your server using the new information immediately.
