Note
  • Requires an IPV4 Static Address
  • Written for Godaddy.com
Instructions
  • Login into your Godaddy Account
  • Purchase a domain or select an existing one
  • On your main domain page, select DNS

  • Next look for a RECORD > TYPE A (With the @ Symbol - If none, create it)
  • Click the pencil/edit button
  • Under value, put your IPV4 address

  • Hit save
  • Can take anywhere from 1 hour to a 1 day
  • When you SSH in, you can use your domain name instead of your IP address
Point your Subdomain to A Service
Why is this important? It's for security. Version 5 will eliminate direct port access or a form of option to remove an example such as plexguide.com:19999; rather... this setup allows you to access port 19999 through a subdomain such as plexpy.plexguide.com. Everything works behind a reverse proxy. It's better to start doing this now so you understand; rather than later!


To have all your subdomains working for https:// and for sanity sake, do a * (wild card) and then your IP as shown above. You do not have to do each subdomain!

Yes, but unless your ISP changes your IP address constantly, it shouldn't be too big of an issue. I'm on a dynamic IP address and it hasn't changed in 6 months.
