How can i remove port no from Jira URL for hosting jira over internet

Hi All,

We are using Jira 7.3.5 on premise, planing to host Jira over Internet.

We made DNS entry(exp: for Jira but if we exclude port no form jira URL, it is inaccessible.

It is really necessary to hide port no from Jira URL before hosting it on Internet.

Please suggest if anybody have any solution.

Any comments is much appreciated.

Thank you!!

Two basic options

1.  Run the server on port 443 (or 80 if you want it insecure).  Browsers don't need the port number when you run it on https or http.

2.  Most of us stick it behind a proxy which will can listen on any port (i.e. 443 or 80) and pass the information to the jira server over any other port.  You can also do this with networking, but it's a bit more of a fiddle.

Hi Nic,

Thanks for swift addreess to the issue.

We have Jira and Confluence both hosted on the same server, we can not host both on port 80 or 443.

please suggest any solution.

Thank You!!

Hi Nic,

Thanks for the update.

Could you please provide me the high level overview for configuring proxy server for jira.

It is totally new for me.

Thanks in advance.

I'm most familiar with this using Apache, but you could use other proxying web servers.

Apache docs are at
