Hello,

I have a client who wants to use cPanel however needs his Domain to forward to his Minecraft Server (when typed in to his Minecraft Client) and at the same time server content from the cPanel Account.

Is there any way to do this?

Hello,

Certainly. You would keep the A record for the domain at the same IP address on your cPanel server. Then create (or change) the A record for "mail" to point to the IP address of the Minecraft server. The MX record will/should point to mail.domainname.tld and that can be left alone.

Then website and all other traffic for the domain goes to the cPanel server while email gets routed via DNS to the Minecraft server.
