Setting my own dns records

Hi can you set your own dns records and port numbers.

ie in the domain section I select one of my domain names and then select dns records. And I want to add

home A 212.xxx.xxx.xxx:81

so that when you go to http://home.xxxxxxxxx.co.uk

you will go to my server on the above ip and on to port 81.

Is that possible.

No.

You can't specify the port as that is not part of the DNS protocol. DNS is just for finding IP addresses for domain names, it knows nothing about port numbers. The port that is used for the connection must be specified by the browser/program that connects to the IP address returned.

THanks for that, thats what I thought.
