I have a Minecraft server hosted from my home. I would like to have a URL to give that will direct the Minecraft client to my server instead of giving out my external IP.

I am using Google Domains. There is not much documentation that is making total sense to me.


Lets say

My external IP:

Port that my router is listening on: 25565


This is what my resource records look like for my domain.


Name                         Type                       TTL                       Data


@                                  A                           1h              


_minecraft._tcp            SRV                      1h                         10 10 25565 mydomain.com


subdomain                   A                           1h              




After talking with Google Support multiple times this is how they told me it should look so that going to "subdomain.mydomain.com" will resolve to

Is this correct?


It is not working and I've been thinking about this too long. My brain is fried.
