    Is there a way to redirect the IP Address and the port? For example. Say I have an Ip Address of and a port of 5437. Would I be able to make No-Ip automatically redirect to Or could I actually do this by messing with server properties?

    I moved to a hosting company a few days ago, and my old no-ip host name ( does not work anymore because the hosting company did not give me :25565. So now people have to connect to for it to work... Is there any way I can get my old connection back?

    If your server was previously hosted on a linux box, you can easily setup some iptables routing to forward all incoming traffic to your new IP and port, I did this when I switched servers and maps to avoid downtime, while the ip didn't change for my users, the DNS was being stubborn so the routing fixed it perfectly.

    EDIT: You can create an SRV record which would direct connection right to the correct ip and port. Not sure how it's done with no-ip, though.

    Personally the way I would handle this is though Linode's DNS services or Amazons Route 53, have a domain (say like point it's name servers to your Linode or Route 53 and then you can create neat DNS records.

    Hmm I actually hosted off of a physical server running Windows Server 2012 as an Operating System.. Is there anyway to pull this same situation off with my old setup?
    Here is my new hosting company btw

    >get a domain. It will help you in the long run.

    Thats not the problem, the problem is I still want to use Without that I would have to manually tell every single member about the new address..

    I think you need to ask the folks at no-ip if you could redirect port 25565 to port 5437.

    You could probably do it with a DNS SRV record.

    Where do you think I should start if I were going to do that?

    It would have to be in the DNS records for
    So, again, you need to be asking the people.

    Hmm.. Alright, thanks for your help. I'll do some searching around

    I've figured out that No-Ip supports advanced records. I have heard a TON about SRV records, and I believe I might be on the right track.. I just do not know where to go from here.
    Does this look like the right place at all?

    OK, cool. The full service name you want is
    So based on that web form, I'd say you want
    Service: minecraft
    Protocol: TCP
    Target: (or a domain name if you have one)
    Port: 5437

    And here's how it works with the Minecraft client: For each address, Minecraft performs a DNS SRV lookup; If it succeeds, it extracts the target address and port. Then Minecraft performs a DNS A lookup of the server address (using the one from the SRV record or, if that failed, the original address). It then uses the resulting IP address and port to perform the server list ping.

    Let us know if this works.

    You can check it by using (on Windows) nslookup -type=SRV

    I see there's already a record there pointing to, so I'm a bit confused. Did you already have something to redirect your port from 25565 to 25614?
