Is there a way to access my Nextcloud server hosted on my home network by using a GoDaddy subdomain? Basically, I would like to create a subdomain such as and use it to access my Nextcloud server.


I have created an OpenMediaVault server and used docker to install Nextcloud. Now, I can access the Nextcloud site and files locally within my network just fine using the local IP address and assigned port (i.e.


However, I would like to access the Nextcloud server from outside my network by using a subdomain from GoDaddy (i.e. I have read that I can share/open ports to my network but people in forums say that that is not a good idea as it is opening my ports to all.

Therefor, is it possible to access my Nextcloud server via a subdmian from GoDaddy? If so, can you pls point me to some steps or documentation to do this?
