Hello, I have a domain that I've been using as a personal website, and recently discovered subdomains. In a nutshell, I was wondering how to configure a readable address to act as the IP address + port for logging into multiplayer. (i.e. server.myserver.com is equivalent to xx.x.xxx.xxx:123)
I found that dyn.com offers this for free at http://dyn.com/dns/dyndns-free/, and it works great, but you have to use their domains and I prefer the one that I paid for. I also have a dynmap (a bukkit mod), so it would be convenient if I could set those up as map.myserver.com (acting as xx.x.xxx.xxx:321). That way it's easy to access these things.
Through my provider (GoDaddy), I've set up A-Records for the subdomains, and they point to the static IP address of my server & map. However, it won't let you specify ports, so I'm at a loss. How does dyn.com do it?
I figured this was a good a place as any to start. Can anyone assist me? Thanks a bunch.
Yeah, If you run it on your computer, why don't you just use the default port 25565? if you use 25565, you won't have to enter a port into minecraft. Now if you have a host like mcprohosting like I do, then you will have to get the dedicated IP like I had to so I could use
fightandconquer.net instead of fightandconquer.mcpro.co
