  2. To allow people to connect to your server using your domain name, you need to point the domain to the IP using a nameserver. Normally the site that you bought the domain from provides this service. In the control panel of the site, you just need to go into manage dns and set the 'A' record of your domain to point to If you got the domain name from GoDaddy, read the following article for how to use the DNS manager:

    If you wish to host a site as well however, it is very complicated to do what you are saying of redirecting traffic through their server. I would recommend creating a subdomain for users to connect to your server with(such as, keeping the main domain for your website.

    this is easy. use subdomain + A record to the server's ip adress

    also we are trying to see if there is just someone that can help us MAKE the sight/site if anyone is interested. we can't guarantee any kinda pay BUT we sure damn do try to reward everyone who helps us out.

    In DNS-Settings of DirectAdmin of whatever you use for the Domain add an A record with as a name play, mc.. or something else and as IP the IP of the server without the port. +- 1 Day and it's up.
    If the name is play then you would have to give in: play.YOURDOMAINNAME.DOMAINEXTENSION
    If you do not have the default port 25565 then you'll have to add the port to it too, this cannot be configured.

    I've deCAPitated your thread title. Have your purchased your domain name from a registrar yet?

    yes i purchased a domain from domains made easy and i downloaded forums software for it but i dont have time/skill to make it look nice and work well :(

    i basically need a webpage designer who can make my forums work and look good for no charge or at least cheap. like i said a lot to ask but i figured its worth the try

    if you can help me please add my server skype i mentioned it earlier but its bluemountainserver. on skype please and thank you
