Subdomain that forwards to a specific port number on the main domain

Hi there,

So I currently have my domain (website.com) forwarding to my no-ip service (webaddress.no-ip.com) as I have a dynamic IP address that frequently changes. That all works correctly, and I can access my sub ports by going to "website.com:254" or whatever specific port I specify.

 

What I am looking to do, is create a subdomain (sub.website.com) and have it forward to a specific port number on my main domain (website.com:254) so that all I have to do is type in the sub domain address, rather than the domain and port number. Is this at all possible?

Would I enter "website.com:254" as the "forward to" under subdomain, or would I have to forward that to "webaddress.no-ip.com:254"

 

I'm new to this whole domain process, I'm lucky that I've managed to get the root of the domain to forward correctly.

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: Subdomain that forwards to a specific port number on the main domain

Create the sub domain
in the GoDaddy Control Panel Click on the domain, scroll down where it's says forwarding, choose forward to: http://127.0.0.1:80 (replace with your IP and the port)
Choose forward type
Choose Forward with Masking to hide the ip if needed....
