How to change the port number without affecting the IIS service ?

Hi Guys,  

Currently I have configured the JIRA setup in Cloud Windows Server 2012 and the port number is 8980, the service is running fine and all plugins working fine. 

But I have one task to do for Example.

Windows Server IP -

Hostname -

Domain -

All the users login URL -> Login page -> login success

Now my question

I have registered the new domain name called "" and which is brought in Godaddy I just added Record for this Domain Name jira.exampl.eocm ->

If I enter the its showing the IIS page of the windows Server, so its working fine.

Now I want to change the port number to the JIRA the port number must be 80 and If I enter the it should show the JIRA login page, in case if I enter the it must show the IIS page of windows Server.

Please advice to do thanks in advance, hope you all understand my question thanks for the service.

If you've got IIS responding to on the internet, then you can't put JIRA on port 80, because IIS is using it.

You'll need to configure IIS to reverse proxy to JIRA to serve it up as part of your sire.  See
