How to Access Nextcloud Server Using GoDaddy Subdomain

Hi,

Is there a way to access my Nextcloud server hosted on my home network by using a GoDaddy subdomain? Basically, I would like to create a subdomain such as nextcloud.mydomain.com and use it to access my Nextcloud server.

 

I have created an OpenMediaVault server and used docker to install Nextcloud. Now, I can access the Nextcloud site and files locally within my network just fine using the local IP address and assigned port (i.e. 192.168.1.11:443).

 

However, I would like to access the Nextcloud server from outside my network by using a subdomain from GoDaddy (i.e. nextcloud.mydomain.com). I have read that I can share/open ports to my network but people in forums say that that is not a good idea as it is opening my ports to all. I think I can get OpenVPN configured for me to access the server. However, since I would like other family members to access it, it may be a bit much to ask them to setup a VPN connection.

 

Therefor, is it possible to access my Nextcloud server via a subdmian from GoDaddy? If so, can you pls point me to some steps or documentation to do this?

 

Thx!

Hi @BOOK3R

 

While we can't advise you on the setup of your Nextcloud server (and your VPN setup), perhaps this will assist you in directing a subdomain to the IP address you have noted.
