Hi guys, how do you setup ftp with a subdomain? I have a domain registered at godaddy and would like to use it with ftp.domain.com. I don’t have a static ip and would have to use something like noip or ddns.

All help and tips are welcome!

Well configure a cname record that will point to your ddns name on the nas. Open up a port on your router to forward traffic for the ftp port towards your nas. Use an ftp client to connect using the alias name and the port number that you have configured.

The problem with godaddy is that you need to give an ip and you can not use a non-numerical ip

Isn't possible with reverse proxy so he don't need open up a extra port?

Sure but if godaddy doesn’t allow cname he wount be able to do it via any ddns... it’s 2 late atm here and my brain is not working for any alternative as of yet.

@Rusty was able to get a static ip from my isp (apparently they changed the rules). In regards to the CNAME. I use Migadu.com for email and I have to point my nameservers to those from Migadu. Does means that I can not change the DNS records anymore. Should I temp switch the godaddy DNS recoards add cname etc?

Where your domain is hosted you can (should be able to) create a cname record and point it to your static ip address. Problem solved.

@Rusty one last question: Is it possible to do SSL ftp -> ftp with Synology and if yes any place where I can get information on how-to?
