How to Create a Subdomain in Minecraft
Last modified on Nov 8, 2021 in Control Panel
When Minecraft servers are created, they are given a unique IP:Port which typically looks like “18.104.22.168:25684”. This is the raw address of your server and can be used or given out to others in order to join the server. As this can be troublesome to remember, subdomains are often used in-place of IPs, as they are much easier to remember. For example, the subdomain play.apexmc.co would be the mask for the IP:Port address 22.214.171.124:25684. In this case, the subdomain is much easier to remember for all players involved.
Whether or not you setup a subdomain when purchasing your server, it can be changed at any time through your panel.
How to Set Up a Subdomain
- Navigate to the Apex Server Panel, then locate the
- In this field, you may see that it already has a subdomain set, either the one you chose when you purchased your server or the default one.
- To change the subdomain, simply type out a new one in the subdomain field.
- Once ready, press “Save” on the page to change the domain”.
For example, if you fill it in with `testserver` and click save, it will set your subdomain to
testserver.apexmc.com. Keep in mind, it can sometimes take a short time for subdomain changes to take effect, so check back later if it doesn’t work right away!
Do I have to extra pay for the Sub-domain?
No. This service is managed and provided by Apex Hosting as a courtesy with your server, completely free to use for your benefit.
Can I update an existing Sub-domain?
Yes, you can! All you have to do is change the subdomain field on the game panel and press save.
How many Sub-domains can I create?
You are only able to create a single sub-domain for your server at a single time.
