I just set up my Apache web-server (following a tutorial from Jeremy Morgan), and since I have a domain name (pillower.com) registered with GoDaddy, I was wondering how I could link them. Would changing the forwarding settings on GoDaddy be my best bet?


You will have to forward port 80 to your Raspberry Pi. Then you have to tell GoDaddy that you want them to have the IP of your domain name updated as soon as you get a new IP (Dynamic DNS). Maybe you should use GoDaddy with DynDNS.

  • GoDaddy does not support DynDNS. You need to do it using cnames.

If your pi is behind a router, make sure NAT / port forwarding / Virtual Server is forwarding port 80 to your pi's IP.

And then, tell goDaddy to point A record to your external IP using DNS manager. You could also create a CNAME that forwards www.domain.com to your IP or your dynamic host ( whatever.no-ip.com )
