A group of friends wanted a Minecraft server to play together on, so I went ahead and deployed a VPS, and directed an A record titled
play to the server's public IP address. I connected to the server via SSH using
play.coffeehousecode.com as the hostname, and didn't encounter anything out of the ordinary, so I started a Minecraft Server instance, and the logs showed no problems to report.
However, when trying to connect to the server using the Minecraft client, I receive an error stating that the Hostname couldn't be Resolved. I checked my DNS records to make sure everything checks out, and SSH-ed into the server again without a problem. When connecting to the server using it's public IP address, however, I can connect and play without a problem.
Any ideas as to what could be causing this?
