Setup Confluence for External Access via a FQDN

I have finished setting up confluence, I will still need to setup the network to allow confluence to communicate over the net, but I am able to login using localhost. I was also able to install without any errors.

I would no wlike to set the base url to be a more friendly name like Is this possible, this is my internal sever.

The base URL of your instance is updated via Admin -> General Configuration -> Site Configuration.

In fact, the administration page will give you a warning if you are accessing Confluence on a different URL to what this server base URL is set to.

Of course, if you are using something like Apache webserver in front of your instance then you also need to ensure it's settings are appropriate to proxy your URL to your Confluence instance, but I'm assuming you were refering to the base URL explained above.
