Pointing domain at specific port

I am running a remote management server and I want to be able to access it just using my domain. I have my port forward working and can access it using [IP]:[Port] or mydomain.com:[Port] but I want to just be able to use mydomain.com.

 

Am I missing something? I am pretty new to using a domain (In the 'Name' field is my domain)

Unfortunately that is not how domains work - the SRV records are for specific types of internet traffic - not just to point to a port 

 

What you would probably have to do is use forward port 80 to which ever port you are trying to use inside your network
