In this article, we will go over on how to use plugins with a Reverse Proxy including an SSL certificate in combination with your domain to mask the port.
We only offer Reverse Proxies for DedicatedMC.io Customers.
If you wish to switch, we'd love to have you!
- Your own domain. (We offer domains through our Billing Portal.)
- A plugin with a built-in web server. (Plan, DynMap, BlueMap, etc.)
- The plugin must already be configured to use its own port. Guide on how to do that:
At DedicatedMC.io, we provide a free Reverse Proxy for plugins! This guide will show you how to set this up and request it from our Support Agents.
Step 1: To use your plugin 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 will 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:
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 2: When you have created this DNS record, please create a Support Ticket on our Discord by going to the
#create-ticket channel or using the command
Step 3: In this ticket, state that you would like to receive a Reverse Proxy + SSL certificate for your plugin. Also state the following information:
- Your full subdomain + domain (in this example
- The IP of your server + the port used by your plugin (in this example
Step 4: One of our Support Agents will now handle the rest for you! All you will have to do is lean back and wait until they have it setup for you. When done, your plugin will be viewable on your subdomain + domain on a secured HTTPS link without having to use those pesky ports!
