    I own the domain mc-neweden.com and my players connect to the IP 198.24.168.226 at the port 25619.

    How would I make it so my players can connect to mc-neweden.com:25619 instead of 198.24.168.226:25619?

    Is there a guide on doing this? How do I even do this?

    A rough guide:

    1. create a subdomain like s1.mc-neweden.com
    2. create a DNS A record for s1.mc-neweden.com pointing to 198.24.168.226
    3. create a DNS SRV record for _minecraft._tcp.mc-neweden.com, with target s1.mc-neweden.com port 25619

    Users would connect to mc-neweden.com without specifying a port.

    If you want them to have to specify a port, simply make a DNS A record for mc-neweden.com pointing to 198.24.168.226
    But with the SRV record, you can hide the fact that you're not using the default port.

    Hope this helps.

    @Bobcat00 I think you meant DNS A record?

    To get a DNS ip for your server check out noip.com or dyndns.com , i have been using no-ip for a while now and have had no problems with it. If you don't know how to setup a DNS for your minecraft server look around on youtube for some tutorials

    Nah, DNA is quite different from DNS ;)
