Can't connect Minecraft IP to domain

Hello!

 

I'm attempting to run a Minecraft Server with one of my domains.

I hooked up my IPv4 address to a new Type-A DNS, and I can connect using my domain just fine.

However, nobody outside my Wi-Fi network can use it. Can you please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

 

My port is 25565 if that helps.

Re: Can't connect Minecraft IP to domain

Hi @realgameradmin. For something like this, you'd need to point the domain toward your home or business IP address and set up port forwarding in your router (you should be able to find tutorials on this by searching online). Your server users would then need to use domain.com:25565 to access the server. If you don't want them to have to enter a port, you can create an SRV record
