Hey spigot community, I found this article HERE and if you follow all of the steps shown, you will not be able to resolve your domain. I take no credit for this article, I am simply posting it so more people become aware of this simple way to avoid 12 year old kids with "booters" from attacking your server. Note: I do not use HostHorde for hosting . ================================================================= For this tutorial, we'll be managing DNS settings via CloudFlare. The settings shouldn't differ much for the domain registrar you're currently using - however, not all registrars allow you to edit SRV records directly. You may need to contact them to do this. For less hassle, you may wish to consider switching your DNS to CloudFlare. It's free, you don't need to change your hosting provider or move away from your registrar. The only change you make with your registrar is pointing the authoritative name servers to CloudFlare's name servers. If you're interested in doing this, head over to www.cloudflare.com - they'll guide you through getting it set up. Configuration First, log in to CloudFlare and select "DNS Settings" for the domain you wish to use. At the bottom of the page, select "SRV" for entering a new record, like in the following screenshot: In the fields, fill out the settings as follows: Service: _minecraft Protocol: tcp Name: [subdomain] (This is the subdomain you'll use for connecting to your server. For example, if your domain is example.com, and you wish to connect via play.example.com, you would enter just "play" in the field) Priority: 0 Weight: 0 Port: [port] (Enter the port number of your HostHorde Server - if your full server address is "s1.hosthorde.com:25565", you would enter just "25565") Target: [address] (Enter the address (without the port) of your HostHorde server - for example, just "s1.hosthorde.com") Note: Some registrars do not include the "Name" field. If the name field is not available, include the name alongside the protocol, by typing "_tcp.play". ("play" being the name) With the settings all filled out, your configuration should now look similar to the following screenshot: These settings allow us to connect to our demo server using the address "play.hosthorde.com" Save your settings, and you're done! Please note that it can take several hours for the DNS information to propogate, meaning you may not be able to connect to your server using the new information immediately.
