Replicating SRV functionality with apps that don't have integration

Post by ihasamoose » Sat Jun 27, 2020 7:21 am

Hello,

I found the SRV method for things such as Minecraft.

I have a server, hosting multiple different web pages on different ports.

Instead of accessing them via: mydomain:someport, I'd like to access them with just www.mydomain.com.

Is there any way of replicating SRV functionality without creating extra VM's to get a different internal IP?

Namely: Proxmox, Ubiquiti Host Controller, NetData

Thanks,
Austin

While this doesn't answer your question, I'm wondering if you have considered just having the different domains point to different folders on the web hosting? This is how I normally see it done. It does mean they would be sharing a numerical IP by default, but it seems you are already doing that anway with them all on different ports.

It is very common for a webserver to service multiple subdomain+domain combinations (vhosts). How to set these up varies depending on the webserver software that you are using. With Apache, for instance, there is documentation here: https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/vhosts/examples.html
