In this guide, we will see how to link an OVH domain name to your game server.
Get necessary informations
First of all, you will need to retrieve your server's port and machine:
Here you can notice that the example server is on the machine "Game 1" and that its port is "60000".
Create the DNS entry on OVH
Go to "DNS Zone".
Then select "Add a new entry" then type "SRV".
You will then have several values to enter :
Subdomain : _minecraft._tcp.whatyouwant (To have an address in "play.mondomaine.fr" for example, enter "_minecraft._tcp.play")
TTL : Default
Priority : 0
Weight : 5
Port : The port of your server retrieved before, in this example it is "60000".
Target : gameX-fr.hosterfy.com
For example if you are on the Game1 : "game1-fr.hosterfy.com", Game2 : "game2-fr.hosterfy.com", etc.
Do "next" then "validate".
Let's take an example, in the case of the test server, if I want an address in "play.mondomaine.com".
Congratulations ! You have linked your domain name to your game server !
Please note that a DNS zone can take up to 48 hours to propagate, so it is normal that the domain does not work immediately.
