Access Confluence by Domain

Hi Atlassian Team,

I have installed Confluence and JIRA on my own Virtual Server. Everything works fine and I can access both installations by the IP:PORT.

Now I want to access them by two subdomains ( + I have created especially for this case, but I have no idea how to link the subdomains with the ports.

Maybe with a SRV record? Maybe a complete different way?

Can you please support me.


Last information:

- I'm using JIRA and Confluence on an Linux (Ubuntu) Server with Plesk

- my Webhoster is Ionos


Thank you very much in advance and best regards,

@Christopher BarnofskyWelcome!

There are two important step here,

  1. Mapping both to IP address of server.
    1. After doing this you will be able to use to access both Jira and Confluence.
  2. Setup reverse proxy
    1. You can use some reverse proxy server for example (Nginx or Apache HTTPD) and run it on default HTTP port (80) on server which has Jira and Confluence installed.
    2. Later, you can create virtual host for both Jira and Confluence to redirect to their respective  local port.
    3. You can find this documented here,


Bonus - once your reverse proxy is set, you can block traffic on both Jira and Confluence port from external source and allow localhost only.


I hope this helps.
