Port 80 redirect


#1

Hi, before I purchase a DreamHost domain name, I’d like to know if port 80 redirection is supported.

My ISP decided to block port 80 so I’ve been using port 8080 for a while now.

Thanks

It sounds like you want to host a domain at home. DNS isn’t going to do port redirects for you, however you can set up a site here and have its index.html file do a META REFRESH to your home machine on port 8080.

Either way, you’d need to buy a hosting plan here, as you don’t get a DNS server unless you’ve got hosting here.
