Reverse proxy for port 80?

Hello, I'm new here?

I'm currently bought vps from wishosting. So far I'm very satisfied with performance. But I've problem in setting apache/nginx web server. Since port 80 cannot be used by default, I need to append port number to my domain. How can I make it works without typing the port number? I've googled for various reverse proxy method but none works for me

    You can create links with the http://host:port/ links in it, or if you got one with IPv6 native, you can run it through CloudFlare, which will do transparent IPv6-to-4 translation externally.

    NAT VPS or something? Best thing to do if you need without a port would just be to get a server with an actual IP.

    Edit: The thing @WSS mentioned with CloudFlare 6to4 would be better.

    You mean redirect the url? I dont think about it before but that also one of the method :)

    You can't redirect if you don't have access to the hardcoded http/https ports. You could, however, link to your site with the different port in the URL, or as suggested, use IPv6 rather than IPv4.

  • Dont those NAT boxes from @exception0x876 come with some haproxy stuff to host your own domain on the external port 80/443? I know most LES boxes do (although ssl is still a bit iffy)

    I like my uptime down low and my servers all hacked. Can see me droppin' twenty-fours with a router in the rack.
    Ya like ya Switch-Ports hot and ya servers all hacked. If ya pings real high and ya networks pitch black.

    I honestly don't remember, and the IPv6 I wrote down that corresponds to my WIS NAT VPS isn't configured, and the host was rebooted 2 days ago. >shrug<

  • I have that OpenVZ Mini which has IPv4 NAT only

    Port 80 can be opened using a reverse proxy approach. You will need to provide your domain name if you want it opened.

    Open a ticket.

    It's not you configuring the reverse proxy, but wishosting. Port 80 goes to the host node and only from there the request can be forwarded.
    Just open a ticket saying that you want your domain to be forwarded to your server.
