Excellent guide. I've just signed up to post a few questions, I hope someone can give me some guidance as I'm going round in circles.
I currently have a DDNS with No-IP, along with a Letsencrypt certificate and I'm able to connect to individual programs such as NextCloud, SAB and Sonarr when manually entering port numbers along with the DDNS url. When I read this guide regarding reverse proxy I dove in and managed to complete everything NAS side, however I'm having difficulties with No-IP and subdomains.
I would much prefer to have my own domain and not have to rely on a DDNS, maybe be a little more self contained.
My question or questions are;
1) If I purchase a domain name and host it using one of these low cost hosting sites, will that be the same as a DDNS in regards to typing in the website url and being correctly forwarded to the relevant app dependant on the subdomain I used?
2) If so, can anyone recommend a hosting site that allows you the full control necessary to setup reverse proxy and subdomains? I've heard that Flaunt7 might be the ticket.
I hope I'm making sense and I haven't completely missed the mark, this is all very new to me.
