Question

How do I make a SRV record for teamspeak3 server?

I run a teamspeak server on my droplet and I’d like to make it connectable with a domain name rather than an ip address, I’ve tried several CNAME redrictions and SRV records but neither worked out.

I haven’t found any guides and am curious how to make this work with DO’s droplets?

Try this. I just ran through the steps and it is working for me: http://www.johndball.com/setup-teamspeak-3-srv-and-tsdns-resource-records/

You first want to create a normal A record that points the IP address of the TeamSpeak server to the subdomain you want to access it at. Then create the SRV record. It should look something like this:

The bottom row there is for Priority, Port, and Weight respectively.

Check out the TeamSpeak docs for more information.
