Hello there Godlikers!

In this guide, we will go over on how to make your server go from lots of numbers ( or default domain to a fancy domain name such as example.godlike.clubor

First, go to the game panel and select your server. On the main page, above your console you will be able to find your default Domain.

Simple change domain name to and connect without port

Before we are starting witch CloudFlare you need to know that you can easiely set your own subdomain name on our domain As we are in game panel already go to Network settings and type your domain name. For example i typed your_name so i can connect to server with

In this guide we're going use CloudFlare to point our domain to the server. Simply register here. After registration, they will guide you through the process of connecting your domain to CloudFlare.

Alternatively, some domain providers allow you to use their own systems for DNS. Though all sites look different, the task is the same for all of them.


Ensure that the server is grey cloud (not proxied by cloudflare). You can still use cloudflare, just make sure it has a grey cloud so it's not proxied.

  • For the name, it will be your_name. This is the subdomain which we have assigned to it, so whatever name we put there will be put before the domain when we type it in. In this case, it's If you put your_name instead of play, it would be
  • You can use @ in the Name field if you want your root domain to point to your Minecraft server. A root domain is a one like this:
  • We will then put into the IP we got from our server into the IPv4 address. Remember that you don't need to write your server port here.
  • Lastly, double check that the cloud icon is set to 'DNS only'!

Click Save. This process will now take up to 48 hours to apply, but in most cases, it will be under a couple of minutes with Cloudflare!

Pointing a domain to a split server

Split servers don't have a 25565 port and if you want to join to them directly you will need to use something similar to this: We can get around this by using a DNS SRV record that points to the split server port.


For the following steps we assume you already have created an A record pointing to your server IP. If you haven't done so, please follow the steps above to create another A record before you create the SRV Record.

To create a DNS SRV record you will head to your registrar or Cloudflare DNS configuration page.

  • Once you are there, you will click on add a new DNS record and you will select SRV.
  • Then you will proceed to create an identical record to the one above.
  • You will need to replace the Port field with the port that your split server uses
  • Remember to replace the Target field with the subdomain or domain that it's pointing to your server IP.
  • The priority and Weight ports can be leaved at 0. TTL needs to be in Auto.

That's all! Now you should be able to connect to your split server using, you no longer need to use the port.
