How to Connect a Domain - Google Domains Print

  • 18

This article will guide you through the process of setting up your server with a custom domain with/from Google Domains. Before proceeding with this knowledgebase article, please check on your control panel whether or not your server is utilizing a dedicated IP. A dedicated IP makes the numerical IP for your server end with 25565. If you have something else at the end of your numerical IP you do not have a dedicated IP.

Example of Dedicated IP and normal IP:

Dedicated IP:
Normal IP:

  1. Log in to your Google Domains account.
  2. Once logged in, click "My Domains" on the left-hand side to see your domains.
  3. Click on the specific domain you wish to manage:

  4. Click the DNS tab on the left-side:

  5. Scroll down to "Custom Resource Records":

    If you do not have a Dedicated IP, you will also need to setup an SRV record just like this:

6. After inputting that data, click "Add" to add those records.

Congratulations! You've set up your domain with Google Domains!


Please be aware that it can take up to 24-48 hours for your domain to be completely active due to DNS propagation, though this ends up very rarely taking more than a few minutes. If you continue to have issues, do not hesitate to reach out to us!
