The A record on cPanel refers to a specific configuration option that allows users to manage and control the mapping of domain names to their corresponding IP addresses. Users can define and modify the IP address associated with a particular domain name for their Minecraft server. For port numbers other than 25565, create an SRV record instead.
Note: It can take up to 24 hours for ISP/DNS providers to update the A record.
