Domain Setup

If you are using a CreeperHost custom domain, you can configure the domain settings under the "Account" > "Domains" menu. For the most part your domain should come pre-configured and 'ready to go'. Note: We do not support SRV record edits at this time.

If you are using a 3rd party domain, you would need to point your domain (preferably via CNAME: If the IP changes, a CNAME will automatically adjust) to your address. Note: You cannot forward ports via CNAME/A-records, you would need to use an SRV record for this.
