Using a Domain from Godaddy

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am using this server software on a spare computer at my house. I can access it from anywhere, and it is working great. I recently bought a domain and was wondering how I can point it to my server?

The fast and easy way is to forward the domain to your IP and use the masking... if you are using GoDaddy or any of the other ones that support it.

 

The second is to make sure you have a static ip from your ISP, if you dont, ask them if you can have one, possibly is that they will say NO. :lol: If you do have one, you have to configure your computer's windows host file and also the httpd.conf file.

 

I have never really tried it the second way but you can search for a tutorial on Google, i will try and help you find a good one.

 

Good Luck. :D

I forwarded it and it was fine, excpet the adress bar still displayed http://myip/whatever/index.php

 

When I masked it, if i typed in http://thedomainibought/whatever/index.php it would take me to my home page, currently the apache test page. Instead of the real /whatever/.

 

 

If I do the second way (I do have a static IP) will just editing the host file do that? I have looked into using my own nameserver, but I'm 100% clueless on this too. Thank you for the help.

Men, i never really tried this before.... just thought about it :lol:

 

K, looked up and read up and here is the best option i have so far:

 

Try checking the services at DynDNS.

 

Here is the one you need: http://www.dyndns.com/services/webredirect/mywebhop/, they give you a free *(i think) DNS service you can use for this. It will then redirect to your local server.

 

This is the main service view: http://www.dyndns.com/services/webredirect/

If you have a static IP, all you should need to do is set your "a" record (which godaddy should let you configure, if not set it up at afraid.org and use their nameservers) to your ip, and add the domain as a virtualhost (the new version of the server has a script for adding virtualhosts automatically).

I got everything except the last part, were is the script located? And I would add www.thecliquemob.com (my domain) as a virtual host, right?

 

EDIT: Everything seems to be working fine! Thank you for you help guys! :D

As i and he said, its in the new version which is not out yet. He is a Beta Tester so he has the last beta.

 

Should be out this month :D You will have to add the Virtual Host manually.

 

Thanks.
