So I got a website up and running, but how would I go about adding the port to my domain? So instead of https://example.com:3030, it’ll be https://example.com. I know you can use SRV records, but I’ve never used them with websites. How would I do this with SRV records?
I don’t think you can. There was a Internet-Draft that proposes using the SRV record in conjunction with HTTP: draft-andrews-http-srv. But the ID has expired back at 2014 and as far as I knew no browser had implemented this.
For the record:
- Mozilla Bugzilla: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14328
- WebKit Bugzilla: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6872
- Chromium Bugs: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=22423
All the bug reports above was filed 8-18 years ago since the browsers does not implement the SRV record lookup. Chromium and WebKit has declared they intention to not implement such lookup. While for Mozilla, it is at a P3 priority.
But you can try the SRV record yourself. The service name should be
Oh… How am I meant to remove the port at the end, or is there no possible way I can do this
SRV record is not supported by the major browsers (I don’t know if any browser supports it at all) and I don’t believe it ever will be supported.
Can’t you use port 80 / 443 directly? Or haproxy or nginx as a proxy in front of your 3030 server?
