Briefly my question is about combining my registered domain with the websites listening on port 80/8080 on my server.

I have a web server IIS on windows 7 and two web sites listening on port 80 and 8080. I have successfully forwarded any incoming request to port 80 and 8080 to my web server. So everything works like a charm when I try to access these websites entering http://myglobalip:80/Index.aspx or http://myglobalip:8080/Index.aspx from a computer outside of the local network.

So I have a domain registered, lets say www.mydomain.com. What steps should I follow in which sequence? What should I consider to do? I need a step by step guide to follow.

I have registered my domain on Godaddy's website and only configured forwarding so the domain forward to my webserver but when I attempt to access the web page, It always try and try until It times out.

I think the best thing to do is add an A Record through the Go Daddy interface:


Once you have the A record you can bind it in IIS (Right click the website, edit bindings)

and then hopefully it should work!
