How do I setup a subdomain


First we need to understand what Dedicated IPs, Subdomains, and SRV Records 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 formatted like 123.123.123.123.  Dedicated IP addresses never have letters or names in them.

 

A 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 an A Record.

 

An SRV Record points to an address with a port number like: 123.123.123.123:9000 - Note that SRV Records 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 create a Subdomain.  If you set up a Subdomain when you ordered your TeamSpeak server and would like to change it, or you did not create one, you are welcome to put in a support ticket so that we can change or create it for you.

 

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

Note: The SRV Record is not needed if you have the port of 25565

 

Second Record:

If these settings do not work for you the best way to get help with them is to contact your domain provider. If you still cannot get it to work we will be happy to help you.
