Probably a Very Common Question...

Postby Genesis » 12. September 2012 06:42

I'm new to this site, but I have been using Xampp for quite some time now. I have a pretty important question to ask...

As with most ISP's, mine has blocked all incoming traffic on webhosting ports such as 80 and 443 which we all know are needed to publicly host a website on our own. I have switched my ports to 81 and 1500 instead, however... When I enter the new ports into my domain name information, once people use my domain name:

http://example.com

it shows up as

http://myip:81

I was wondering how I can fix this so it shows my domain name instead of my IP number. I have been on many different websites asking for help with this and no one can seem to give me a straight answer. Since most ISP's screw us over like this so they can make more money, I assumed this would be a simple question now a days...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

Have you inquired at the help desk of the provider for your nameservers?

If neither your domain name provider nor your ISP can help you, really nobody can help.
Especially your domain name provider should know, that a HTTP redirect on an url is always fully transparent to the clients browser.

What you need is just an A Record which translates your doman name to your ip-address (without port!).
The port must be added to the domain name: http://example.com:81
