This is a networking question rather than a JIRA one, and there are several ways to do it.

Whatever you do, the first prerequisite is to have a domain registered and available for your company.

The most basic one is to simply make your computer the host for that domain.  Of course, that means running on the web server and somehow making everything else you want to run there live alongside it.

Another option is firewall and network routing that will pick up incoming things for that part of the domain and route them to your JIRA server.

Most of us use a "reverse proxy" though.  They effectively do the same as the firewall and network routing, but the config for them is a few standard lines, rather than huge long rewrites and routing tables.  I'm most familiar with Apache, but it's also a doddle with Nginx and Lighttpd, and IIS (although the poor design of that web server makes the config a right royal pain).
