Hey @Cooldisel,

Welcome to the community! Smiley Happy

I'm not really an expert in this sort of setup, but it sounds/looks like you got things setup as needed on the DNS side. If it's not resolving to the port you've specified, sounds like you might not have listening fully setup on the server side which is ultimately where the port direction is going to be controlled. 

At least, that's just from my experience on the matter. I'm sure there's other members here more familiar with port listing that can offer you some better insight or a possible solution to get the result you're looking for.

Re: how to make my domain points to my server with IP and port?

thank you very much 

actually the server is responding when i enter the website with the port 

so when i enter mobile.m-floos.net:1919 it does go to the site

Re: how to make my domain points to my server with IP and port?

did you ever get just the "mobile.m-floos.net" url working? I'm running into the same issue.

 

how to bind domain to my server with IP and port?

I have a website working at example.com:8000

how to bind the port 8000 to example.com?

then I can just open example.com without the port?

 

I have tried domain forwarding and it does not works

Re: how to bind domain to my server with IP and port?

did u fix this by any chance? i am running into the same issue now. i want to point my domain to specific port, but not to show in the browser url. @godaddy #godaddy can you help here. 

Re: how to bind domain to my server with IP and port?

Has anyone got the SRV record to work properly?

I'm having similar trouble with one of my domains.

I must be doing something wrong, despite reading the guidance here: https://uk.godaddy.com/help/add-an-srv-record-19216?

On my first domain, it's working fine, on :8080

On my second domain (at the same IP address), the SRV record is

srv     _smtp._tcp.@     0 0 8081 @

But it keeps sending everything to the same address @:8080

If I browse using {ip address}:8081 it works, but of course it doesn't show the domain name.

Has anyone seen this kind of behaviour and found a fix?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: how to make my domain points to my server with IP and port?

It's been a long time since I dealt with this.  There are 2 main thing that are at play here.

First is the DNS SRV record that points a domain to an IP and port... I think you also have to specify the protocol too.. If it asks you for a protocol, pick TCP.

 

The second is the web server, you have to bind the domain and port to your web directory.  When you bind it, you cannot use a wild card (*) ie: *:8080... You have to specify the actual domain that it will respond to like this -> mydoamin.com:8080 or example.com:1919.  If you use (*), your web server might end up serving the wrong web directory.  I had this very same problem today where my production site did not have a http:80, only https:443... But just because my dev site can be accessed on both https:443 and http:80, using http:80 on production points it to the only http:80 on the server... Ugh, apache, gotta love it.
