    hello eveybody.
    i'm trying to understand more about ubuntu server and been very happy with this. i already have windows homeserver2011 on my house with domain(myexample.homeserver.com) and registered a domain at godaddy with domain(forubuntuserverexample.com). i already done this "http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-ubuntu-12.04-lts-apache2-bind-dovecot-ispconfig-3" to setup everything but i can only access to my server with my IP and not with my domain. any help how to do that?

    Do you want to run your own dns server or do you want to use the ones from godaddy? If you start with using Linux on servers, I recommend to use the ones from godaddy as its not that easy to run a own dns server at the beginning.

    At godaddy, add new DNS A-Recorrds for forubuntuserverexample.com and www.forubuntuserverexample.com and mabe a a-record for mail.forubuntuserverexample.com.

    Then add a MX record for forubuntuserverexample.com that points to mail.forubuntuserverexample.com.

    To check your dns setup, test it at intodns.com

    thanks for your reply. i want to build a webpage at my home and use my server at home and use mail and possible a forum and maybe owncloud
    i'm trying to understand about domains and subdomains and how to redirect the domains and subdomains. i have a static external ip and my router is a Cisco EA6500. i don't know if my windows homeserver interfer with redirections (port 80) to my linux server (i set a port80 to redirect to my linux server). on godaddy i only need to add my external ip?

    Yes, at godaddy you have only to add the records that I listed above. the a-records have to point to your external ip. When you added all the above records, wait an hour and then check if the records are correct with intodns.com

    You maybe could also use an Port 80 Redirect for the Homeserver, so there will be no problems with an other server/site on Port 80.

    Could not say how to do on GoDaddy, never used them, check on them website! It would also requires to change the port 80 on the Homeserver and that new port need also be forwarded from Router to the Homeserver.

    my homeserver uses/connect with upnp, i only can redirect to one ip on router (port80), homeserver uses domainexample.homeserver.com provided by microsoft and i can't do anything, maybe i need to see in the settings on homeserver what can be changed to use more than two domains with same ip

    Redirecting on Router is called Port Forwarding, which is directing incoming access to the assigned site/aps/ip/port. So, if you server is using the internal IP 192.168.0.100 for the Homeserver and 192.168.0.110 for the 2. Server, you need to tell which one has to use the default Port 80 and which one has to use redirected Port (let say) 10080, look at the piture:

    (that's a part from my router Port Forwarding)

    Now the port redirecting itself has to be done by your registra, here: GoDaddy because the Router has to know to which place he should deliver the incoming traffic, special if it's a different location than the default one!

    It could looks like in the following picture or very different:

    That you have to check out with your Registra GoDaddy.

    thanks for your help, big help/info in fact but godaddy don't have port redirect, only
    Record type: A(Host), CNAME(Alias), MX, TXT, SPF, SRV, AAAA(IP6 Host) and NS(nameserver). but i'm always learning and thanks again for your help.

    May the following will works, is worth a try:

    1. Login to GoDaddy
    2. go to Domains
    3. click on "Advanced Details" for the domain to modify
    4. Click "forward" > "Forward Domain"
    5. click "edit"
    6. Enter your IP with the port- e.g. http://xx.xxx.xxx.xxx:81
    7. click "Advanced Options"
    8. select "Forward with Masking"
    9. ok out

    Please let us know the outcome!

    Good to "see" that you got it back working!

    Maybe it's time for you to change your Modem/Router to have enough open port'][s for forwarding. Alternately you could use an single Router (without an modem) for to extend the port range.

    I use an Cisco EPC3925 EuroDocsis 3.0 2-PORT Voice Gateway (it's a Cable Modem/Router) which has 30 available ports. Just enough for get all working!

    i was thinking in building a DHCP server, but i need time and organize some things first, it's a shame that cisco don't have more options for the home user.
