Discourse and Noip

hi, when i enter noip domain to discourse setup i get: port 443 of computer does not appear to be accessable using hostname.

when i ping that noip domain there is no response

Are you trying to host Discourse on a domestic internet connection?

Does the router/firewall have port 443 opened and forwarded to the machine where Discourse will be installed.

yes, port 443 is opened

Is there a software firewall on the host? Is the Ubuntu install a physical machine or a virtual server?

physical machine, i disabled all firewalls

Have you confirmed that the noip domain currently points to the correct IP address? If you can visit https://www.whatismyip.com from the same network as the server, you can compare that with the result when looking up the domain name at DNS Lookup - WhatIsMyIP.com®

yes i confirmed. but ping (ping (domian)) gives no output

Your ISP might be blocking ports and ICMP.

You don’t want to run the development version on a public ip. Lots of security is turned off. For example, you can log in as any user without a password.

please, someone send me instructions to set up discourse on noip hostname :slight_smile:

Why do you need it on noip? You can use cloudflare tunnels instead which is much better.

is there any other solution? i don’t want to give my credit card number to cloudflare.

No, there’s no other official solution. You’re on your own

Edit: Discourse is a Free & Open-Source software which you can host yourself without having to pay for any upfront purchase of license etc.

However, You still have to pay for a domain name, hosting, email etc. These costs can not be avoided.
