Have you ever wondered how those servers have something like yourhost.no-ip.org instead of an IP address for their Minecraft server? This is something easy to do using a free service like No-IP and making a free hostname.

  1. Create an account on No-IP.org, filling in the hostname you want (feel free to pick a different extension as well)
  2. Confirm your No-IP account using your email address
  3. Login and go to your hosts/redirects page
  4. Check the IP address that is listed next to your hostname, if it is correct then you are done and if it is not just click modify and update it

Note: If you use a port other than 25565 then you will need to include it after the hostname still. (ex: yourhost.no-ip.org if the port is 25565 or yourhost.no-ip.org:25567 if the port is 25567)

Note: Your IP address will still work once you do this, so no need to worry.

Thank you for reading my tutorial and please give thanks if you like it. If you are having any troubles feel free to comment or private message me.

This does work, but planet minecraft doesn't accept this type of ip for me.  It just says Failed to connect. Please check your input.
