Need help with making a custom Minecraft server domain using Cloudflare?

Hello, I am making a Minecraft server and I am using Cloudflare to use a custom domain for the server, the domain is hosted on Freenom but i use Cloudflare DNS, I can connect to it but others cant, how do i fix that?

If you’ve proxied (orange-clouded) the hostname for your Minecraft server, players wouldn’t be able to connect to it as the ports/protocols aren’t supported by the regular DNS proxy.

However, you may want to have a look something like Spectrum for Minecraft though. You can proxy your Minecraft traffic with it. Protocols per plan · Cloudflare Spectrum docs

Otherwise, you could also unproxy the hostname and set its DNS record to DNS only (gray-cloud).
