How To Add A Name Records to Your Domain

After purchasing a domain name AND web hosting from us, you can edit your DNS configuration for your server through the billing portal itself. An "A name" record is simply a DNS record that allows you to forward a subdomain of your domain to a specific IP. Uses of it could extend to things like adding a domain IP to your Minecraft server (allowing you to join your server using just a subdomain instead of an IP) or pointing a subdomain of your domain to your web hosting service (making sure it is setup to accept that subdomain first).

Just follow this guide (for Minecraft) for the steps in order to add a DNS record: https://www.beastnode.com/portal/knowledgebase/30/Create-a-DNS-or-IP-Server-Redirect-For-Your-Minecraft-Server-in-cPanel.html

If you purchased a domain name ONLY - follow this guide to setup DNS records through CloudFlare: https://www.beastnode.com/portal/knowledgebase/163/How-to-Create-an-SRV-Record-for-your-Minecraft-server-using-CloudFlare.html
