Hi people I have a small problem andbut I want to set a prefix in front of my domain but somehow it doesn’t do the setting or I still can’t get to the desired page
By any chance, does that prefix end with a dot (
No, it doesn’t.
Can you show us your settings (redact IPs in screenshot)?
Resolves just fine for me.
$ dig +short @18.104.22.168 _test._tcp.redox-xo.cf SRV 1 1 8085 redox-xo.cf.
Whats the issue?
Somehow the DNS entry doesn’t work i actually wanted to set a prefix at my old domain it worked without problems like in the screenshots
What does not work? It resolves fine as I have shown. What prefix are you referring to? What do you actually want to achieve?
so I want to put a prefix in front of my domain so I can set up a forum. But with, unfortunately, it does not solve itself at all on https://gyazo.com/9367f4f3f4829d5ae005e30972ed30e4
The full URL should be test.redox-xo.cf and point to port 8085
What you configured is an SRV record. That wont work the way you want it.
You will need to configure an A record - and if you want port 8085 you need to make sure you are not proxying it over Cloudflare ( and not , hence none of the performance and security features) as that port does not work on Cloudflare.
i already have an A-Record but i just want to put a prefix in front of it like e.g. Forum and at that time that was possible with an SRV-record. i have a server on which two webservers run on different ports one is the homepage and the other is the forum
I really dont know what you mean by prefix. You’d need to provide an example.
SRV records wont allow “prefixes” however any more than regular A records do. Particularly if you are talking about a web context, you do not need to bother with SRV records as they are not used in this context.
So I rented the domain redox-xo.cf I have a server on which 2 webservers run one on port 80 and one on port 8085. The server on port 80 should be addressed with the URL “redox-xo.cf” which works quite well and the port 8085 should be addressed with the URL “monitor.redox-xo.cf” and I can’t write a port into an A-Record
Simply create an additional record for “monitor” which is either an A record pointing to the same IP address or a CNAME pointing to “redox-xo.cf”. Subsequently you can access it via
monitor.redox-xo.cf:8085. Though make sure the record is set to and not .
Well if I enter “redox-xo.cf:8085” then it works without entering but I don’t want to specify the port that the users shouldn’t have to enter because that’s annoying too
That you cant avoid.
At best you could write a custom worker script which manually proxies requests to that port, but that would be pricey.
An SRV record isn’t read/used by browsers to determine what port they should try to access a website on. So specifying that won’t work. Probably better that you should configure a reverse proxy that listens on 80/443 and directs the requests for the sites to their appropriate port on that machine.
