Right now, I am at http://mariowc.myphotos.cc:85 - it's just a DNS redirecting service that points to my IP address where it's hosted on. I am curious, is there a URL-forwarding/masking service that'll work, so I can just link to let's say mariowc.someaddress.com ? I don't wanna have to include the port every single time. If anyone knows of anything like this, please hook me up. :)

no-ip.com has a nice setup, been using them for quite a while (till I bought my own domain)

yeah, I use no-ip and think it's great. I would suggest that one.

Yep, it works great. However now no one can access my site. :( :( :( I tried changing the ports - nothing.

If it is *just* dns, then you have to put the port. A domain name has zilch to do with port specification.

You'd have to hide the port by having a whole other site at the domain you want do a http redirect you your site with the port inside.

If you know of a website that works on normal port 80 you could ask politely to put this up for you:

Code:
<html>
<head>
<Title>Mastiti's Redirect</title>
<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="1; URL=http://mariowc.myphotos.cc:85">
</head>
<body>
Please wait for redirection...
