How to set up Dynmap with a Reverse Proxy + SSL and mask the port

In this article we will go over on how to use Dynmap with a Reverse Proxy including an SSL certificate in combination with your domain to mask the port.

General Information

At DedicatedMC.io, we provide a free Reverse Proxy for Dynmap! This guide will show you how to set this up and request it from your Support Agents.

As stated in the description, a domain is required! Without a domain you will not be able to setup a reverse proxy. You can purchase a domain from DedicatedMC.io here.

How to set up Dynmap with a Reverse Proxy + SSL and mask the port

Step 1: If you've made it this far, you will have already setup Dynmap to work on an additional port. If you haven't, please follow this article first.

Step 2: To use your Dynmap in combination with a domain, you will need to create a subdomain in your DNS settings. All Domain providers will have a different DNS editor, but the DNS record itself will remain the same. In this example we wil be using the subdomain map, but anything you want is possible. Simply change the Name value to anything of your choosing.

You will need to create the following DNS record:

Name: map
Type: CNAME
Target: revproxy.dedicatedmc.io

When you have created your record, you can use this website to check if you created it properly. Fill in your full subdomain+domain to check.

Step 3: When you have created this DNS record, please create a Support Ticket on our Discord with the command -ticket.

Step 4: In this ticket, state that you would like to receive a Reverse Proxy + SSL certificate for your Dynmap. Also state the following information: - Your full subdomain+domain (in this example map.dedicatedmc.io) - The IP of your server + the port of Dynmap (in this example 138.201.84.117:25566)

Step 5: One of our Support Agents will now handle the rest for you! All you will have to do is lean back and wait untill they have it setup for you. When done, your Dynmap will be viewable on your subdomain+domain on a secured HTTPS link without having to use those pesky ports!

Done!
