Hosting my own website


Recommended Posts

well it's not really hosting my website, although maybe at a later date i could have 1 page with a couple of links on it.


What i would like is instead of using my static ip address : port, i would like to use a web address : port. The reason for this is that for dockers like ombi, for requesting plex stuff i have to remember the ip address when i give it out to friends.


It would be even nicer to have www.domainname.com/ombi 


I know absolutely nothing about websites, so would anybody be able to give me a general gist of what i need to do.


when i google for stuff, inevitably i have to use their tools and host it on their servers.


1) I guess the first thing to do is register a domain name

2) ?


thanks ?

There are a whole host of other things you need to do.

I assume the static IP is assigned to your router/modem?  You need some way of telling your router to forward requests to the specific address where ombi available.  You might check out SpaceInvader One's video channel on YouTube.  He covers a lot of unRaid topics.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZDfnUn74N0WeAPvMqTOrtA

thanks for the link


the static ip address is the one given to me by my ISP 


i think i actually just want a redirect from www.mydomain.com to externalstaticipaddress:port


at the moment i give out the link that is like this: but it would be nice if i could give out the link as something like this: http://www.mydomain.com/requests or even simply http://www.mydomain.com
