    I have been toying with idea of turing the mcpe.me into a hostname generation service for a while. Thanks to @iamadpond I figured out a way to get things working.

    This service is basically no-ip but simpler and just for PocketMine. It gives you distinct benefits over no-ip and other services:

    • You are much more likely to get the name you want. I may even be able to free up used names depending on your scenario.
    • Shorter than any popular hostname allocation service (not couting dot.tk)
    • The domain name actually means something. It shows everyone that you are running an MCPE server.
    • No registration needed. It just happens.
    If you don't know what no-ip is, it basically allows players to connect to your server using a hostname instead of an IP. So, say I own a server called "maxPVP" and players connect using 1.2.3.4. If I start using mcpe.me I can allow players to connect using maxPVP.mcpe.me. This won'r replace your IP, it just creates an "alias" for it.

    Get your cool hostname today! http://mcpe.me

    If you need to edit your record, delete your record or create a CNAME or AAAA record, please contact me at [email protected].

    Isn't it AAA record instead of AAAA?

    Is the source of this on GitHub? It looks like it would be helpful for updating AAAA records for a load balancer.

    Never mind, it has been fixed. Thanks for this service man :) Could you add a feature where you can change the domain name? And a feature where you can delete the domain/record? As I'm going to be using this temporarily. I don't know how to.

    Because there isn't any registration involved, this can't be added. If you need something updated or changed just email me at [email protected] (using the email you signed up with) and I can do it for you. I may have to email you back to confirm that you own the email address though :)
