    Hi, I got into the hype of self hosting website and did the usual thing of getting my sites to be online ww, redirected my domains to forward .com to ://mystaticip/sitename . But now I would like my site to show url of mysite.com instead of prefix that's my ip and that would be my first "stuck" point in this question.

    Second question, I read about and installed virtualbox with ubuntu in order to create vpn to secure my self hosted websites on my main win 10. So far I have gotten to the point of trying many things but ultimately stuck on the part of fresh virtual ubuntu installation.

    Thank you very much for your time and help.

    You need to setup the DNS - an 'A' record for the domain.com and CNAME for www to point to the domain.com

    Second thing, I don't understand this.
