So, I have played around with multiple different websites, No-IP.com, afraid.org, and zoneedit and have had no luck...mainly because I don't understand all of the correct terms.

I have my website www.mydomain.com:1337

I know groovicus tried explaining it in a different post, but that post was getting a little lengthy and had a bunch of different questions/problems from me.

Anyways, how exactly do I lose the port number? So when I type mydomain.com it shows up, without the need for the :1337 at the end. Follow?

It looks like it is definitely possible with zoneedit, I have looked at the scripts at afraid.org like I was previously told, but tried some of them to no avail.

I have found this in another forum, but didn't understand fully:

1.Sign up and get started with ZoneEdit.
2.Make your web server listen on port number like "6000" or "5000"
3.Check to see if your web server works by in a browser using a URL: Use the port number that you're listening on and the real IP address of your machine.
4.Add the "IP Address" for your web server in ZoneEdit: "ww2.domainname.com" points to "ip address".
5.Add a Web Forward entry for your domain called "www.domainname.com" that points to http://ww2.domainname:6000/

I think you just have to follow the prompts, and if you're confused, you'll get an error when you complete the form.
