I've got Ubuntu webserver set up in my place. Purchased domain and registered dynamic dns service on no-ip.com to take care of constantly changing external ip address. The thing is when I try to view my website outside of my network, meaning, I switch the wifi in my phone off and use data plan my phone came with I can't access it. It just keep struggling to connect and eventually get an error.
The way I went about it: I set my domain to forward all requests to the dns provider that manages changing ip address. So everytime when the ip change, dns service picks up on that and redirects all requests to the changed ip address. That's how I understand this works.
What am I missing here ?
Before you ask, yes, I could simply upload my files to the hosting website to take care of the hosting, but I like the idea of hosting my website on my own.
