How to create an SRV record

Shows you how to setup a service record

The method below uses Teamspeak 3 as an example. The service name and protocol may change depending on the service you want to link. Below are a few examples.

  • _minecraft._tcp
  • _ts3._udp
  1. Login to cPanel and find the DNS zone editor.
    Zone Editor
  2. Click "Manage" on the domain you want to add the record to.
  3. Click "Add Record" and create an A record, which links to your [b]SERVICE IP[/b], where your service actually runs.
    This would be your minecraft or teamspeak servers IP, and ONLY the IP.
    The actual URL is irrelevant, but should be something other than your main domain name. [b][/b] is a good choice.

  4. Save that record.
  5. Next click "Add Record" again, select type "SRV" and insert the values as seen below. Replace[b]_ts3._udp[/b], [b]PORT[/b] and [b]TARGET[/b] with your values.
