I am not entirely sure what the question is, so I am going to make a bit of a guess and say what I think you might have got and want from it.

I think you've got something like I've got here at home.  I have a machine running Confluence hooked up to a local network.  One device in my local network is a broadband modem, which connects my network into the internet using NAT.

My confluence is on a machine, but my internet address (the one the modem has) is a dynamic ip given by my ISP.  To use my Confluence on an internet domain name (which I do own), I have done these things:

  • Got my own domain name
  • Set up a service that ties my domain name to the IP address my ISP gives to me, so lands on my modem
  • (Additonal step - my ISP does not give me a static address, so I've subscribed to a service that updates the routing when they change it, there are several that do it, but I use "no ip")
  • Told my modem that when traffic lands on, route it internally to a proxy server (this is "port forwarding")
  • Told the proxy to route it to when it's a  Confluence request  

I use a proxy because I'm running more than confluence and a proxy allows me to run them all in one place - it's actually,, and so on.  If I  only wanted to run Confluence and nothing else, I could skip the proxy and just use port forwarding to take all traffic on port 443 (https) to
