DNS setup of DSL home web-hosting behind a NAT

Recommended Posts


I bought a domain, now I want to host a website on one of my PCs at home. My external IP is dynamic, so I use no-ip.com service to resolve myusername.no-ip.com to it. I have an Alcatel modem/router/firewall that does the NAT (easy to set up with Mirdesign's Auto Port Mapping). 
This configuration works well enough for remote control of my PCs using Radmin, but I'm wondering if web-hosting can be as straightforward:
1. Are there any limitations in hosting this site on port 80?
2. How do I set up a DNS service to resolve my domain to this internally hosted website? Is it possible to resolve this domain to the no-ip.com subdomain (which in turn will resolved to the external IP, which in turn will be mapped to the internal IP of the web-server)? Should I run my own DNS server? How difficult is it?
3. I also want to experiment in hosting bugzilla, cvs and ldap servers. Would mapping different ports for each be sufficient?

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
