I have looked in various places on this community but was unable to find an entry on how to correctly enter an SRV record on DigitalOcean’s DNS panel. As far as I know, they are correctly formatted like this example:
_service._protocol.name.server.com 36000 IN SRV 0 5 25565 name.server.com
However, when entering the first section (before the TTL) in the Name field on the DNS panel, I am always issued a 404 error when trying to connect to the service.
SRV records are not explained very well on DigitalOcean and it would be nice to get a tutorial on setting one up for a secondary webserver or gameserver, etc.
