Using an SRV record for Minecraft

If you want both your Minecraft server and Named Hosting to function the same domain, you can use an SRV record.

  1. Your root domain and www. subdomain should point to NamedHosting
  2. You should create a separate subdomain for your Minecraft server, like play.
  3. You should create an SRV record on your root domain, pointing to your subdomain.
