Those wondering how to convert their server IP with letters:

You can use our free subdomain. Quick and easy!
MYOWNNAME.connectminecraft.com
MYOWNNAME.linkmc.net
Just go to the control panel and click on settings. You will find the options to set your free subdomain from there.


Don't want to use a subdomain? Want your own domain? Well the first thing you need is a domain that's not already taken...

Example:
OurServerName.com

This costs about $10 a year and you have to buy it from a registrar like Godaddy or Netregistry or CrazyDomains... etc.

Now you need to link this domain to your server. For this you need a DNS Server and add some DNS records for the domain (A record and SRV record is required)

Sounds complex? It doesn't need to be, we can do it for you for free!
DNS servers can cost extra from your domain name provider and setting up the records can be a little tricky.
STIPE can provide FREE DNS servers and set up the records for you! (As long as you don't have any other services running on the domain like Website or Emails)

If you want STIPE to handle the DNS settings for you, just change the nameservers of your domain to the following:
Name Server: NS3.STIPESERVER.COM
Name Server: NS4.STIPESERVER.COM
(make sure you remove all other nameservers)

Now contact our support team and we will sort the rest out for you!



Want to use your own DNS Server?

If you want to create your own DNS records yourself you need to create DNS records as follows:

SRV RECORD:
Protocol & Name: _minecraft._tcp.{subdomain}
Priority: 0
Weight: 1
Port:  {Your server port}
Host: {Your server node name}.speakserver.com.

For example, if you want mc.OurServerName.com and your server port is: 25567 and node is MINT20
Then create SRV record as follows:
Protocol & Name: _minecraft._tcp.mc
Priority: 0
Weight: 1
Port:  25567
Host: mint20.speakserver.com.

Example 2: (For GoDaddy or similar interfaces)
Type = SRV
Service = _minecraft
Protocol = _tcp
Name = {subdomain}
Target = {Your server node name}.speakserver.com.
Priority: 0
Weight: 1
Port:  {Your server port}


That's all! Contact our support team if you have any issues.

Hey Crazy,

Awesome post, exactly what I was looking for.

So how does one go about getting a free STIPE subdomain?

Thanks for all of your help,

Korey.
