Host trough airvpn server

Recommended Posts

I need to host a website at home using my actual pc as a host machine but I don’t want to show my home network ip as the website ip, can I connect the server host machine itself trough air  vpn in order to make the website visible as airvpn ip instead of my local ip ? 
Is it possible in accord to airvpn  tos?

You can, but it will be difficult for others to view the website.

Forward a port by going to the port forwarding page.
If you want a random port, leave the first text field blank. Let's say you entered 9000 here.
At TCP/UDP, TCP is enough but you can leave it like that.
Local port should either be 80 for HTTP or 443 for HTTPS.
DDNS is strongly advised. Let's say, you entered mywebsite here. Then people can always reach your website when they connect to mywebsite.airdns.org. Unfortunately, due to the standard HTTP and HTTPS ports being 80 and 443 and the inability to forward any port numbers less than 1024 on AirVPN, they must additionally enter your forwarded port after the website. If you forwarded port 9000 as written above, people must connect to mywebsite.airdns.org:9000 and not simply mywebsite.airdns.org. This might get tedious for your viewers and is potentially unwanted.

Should be. I advise to read through the ToS, especially point 4 on what you might not be allowed to host, indirectly.

» I am not an AirVPN team member. All opinions are my own and are not to be considered official. Only the AirVPN Staff account should be viewed as such.

» The forums is a place where you can ask questions to the community. You are not entitled to guaranteed answer times. Answer quality may vary, too. If you need professional support, please create tickets.

» If you're new, take some time to read LZ1's New User Guide to AirVPN. On questions, use the search function first. On errors, search for the error message instead.

» If you choose to create a new thread, keep in mind that we don't know your setup. Give info about it. Never forget the OpenVPN logs or, for Eddie, the support file (Logs > lifebelt icon).

» The community kindly asks you to not set up Tor exit relays when connected to AirVPN. Their IP addresses are subject to restrictions and these are relayed to all users of the affected servers.


» Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, chances are you will be unique amond the mass again.
