  • Pointing GoDaddy domain to home server

    Mar 08, 2017 08:42 PM|Sam_Gardner|LINK

    Hello!

    I'm currently trying to switch all my web hosting to my home server instead of using GoDaddy's web hosting. I have IIS setup and I can browse to a website while on my local network but cannot reach it externally. I've watched several YouTube videos trying to get the DNS settings and port forwarding correct and I still haven't figured it out. What I really need is a step by step of what settings to change on GoDaddy, my router, and local server to get it working properly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Due to the factors, there would be no possibility to give you a step by step guide.

    You will have to learn how to debug each scenarios, and then identify what is missing,
