What can I do if my ISP blocks incoming port 80?
Posted by Darren Radsmith on 17 April 2005 05:59 PM

If your ISP is blocking incoming port 80, you can use HTTP Redirection records as a work around to still host a local website. Create an HTTP Redirection with a destination URL of "http://www.example.com:8888". This specifies an alternate port number which is open on your web server.

We have a tutorial for creation of HTTP Redirection records on our help website.
