How do I make a SRV record for teamspeak3 server?

Posted November 10, 2014 16.5k views

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?

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.

    But I still can’t connect to the server using “”

  • @valentinwanne: It doesn’t look like is a registered domain name – are you sure that’s your domain name and that there aren’t any typos?

  • Do I have to register a domain name outside of DO?
