How do I setup a subdomain

First we need to understand what Dedicated IPs, subdomains and SRV Reccords are: 

We offer products that come with a Dedicated IP, a dedicated IP means that nobody else has that IP address and is always a number formated like 123.123.123.123.  Dedicated IP addresses never have letters or names in them.


subdomain is a name at the beginning of an address like ts3.yourdomain.com. There are many ways you can set up a subdomain, a couple of those are SRV Record and A Record.

An SRV Record points to an address with a port number like: 123.123.123.123:9000 - SRV recods can sometimes cause connection issues.

An A Record points to an address without a port number like: 123.123.123.123


We offer a free subdomain with most of our services 

For TeamSpeak, you are asked when you sign up to setup the subdomain.  If you setup a subdomain when you ordered your TeamSpeak server and would like to change it, put in a support ticket and we will change it for you.

For Minecraft, in your Multicraft control panel, on the main page there is a filed labeled Domain, simply add your desired subdomain in this field and hit save.  If you do not see this option, please put in a support ticket so we can enable it for you.
