Creating SRV record for Minecraft within cPanel

With all of our shared IP Minecraft plans, you're able to link your (sub)domain to your server and to do that, you'll need to set up an SRV record.
If you've bought a dedicated IP address or have an enterprise server, you can set up an A record instead using that IP.

Please note: It may take up to 48 hours for a DNS update to take place, so if this tutorial doesn't work immediately, please wait a bit.

The steps to add the SRV record is as follows:

  1. Log into your DeluxeNode cPanel account. A quick login link is available within the client area.
  2. Scroll down or search for Zone Editor.
  3. Select Manage on the domain you would like to add the SRV record to.
  4. Click the drop-down next to the Add Record button and select SRV.
  5. In this tutorial let’s say we want play.example.com 
    Name: Should be the subdomain you want along with the protocol/service. In our case, it’s _minecraft._tcp.play.
    TTL: Use 14400. You can also use any other values if you know exactly what this is, and how to use it. 
    Priority: Use 1. You can also use any other values if you know exactly what this is, and how to use it.
    Weight: Use 1. You can also use any other values if you know exactly what this is, and how to use it. 
    Port: This should be the port your server is running on. (ie., 25565, 40000, etc.) 
    Target: The address of the node you're on, for example, sta-01.game.acc.de.sys.deluxenode.com.
  6. Finally, press the Add Record to the right.

It may take a few hours for things to take place.
