In the 1.3 patch for Minecraft, there is an awesome workaround for allowing users to connect to your hostname without requiring a port at the end i.e. minecraft.no-ip.biz:27165.
This is one of the biggest complaints that we hear from Minecraft users using No-IP’s dynamic DNS. With the new Minecraft patch, you can now use a SRV record, which acts similar to a Port 80 Redirect. Check out this easy tutorial for adding an SRV record to your hostname. Please note: an SRV is an advanced DNS record and is only available with our Enhanced Dynamic DNS and Plus Managed DNS services.
Did you know about this update? Have you used a SRV Record before?
