My domain name is registered with GoDaddy, with the registry details hidden at secureserver.com. For years, http://www.my_domain.com
has been redirected with masking to web.mac.com. With MobileMe web hosting going away, I redirected iWeb to host my site on the DiskStation, which has a DDNS of something.familyds.org, a Synology domain. It was a simple matter at GoDaddy to change the redirection to something.familyds.org and ensure the CNAME record for www pointed there. This can take some time to propagate throughout the DNS system.
Getting a StartSSL server certificate for my_domain.com was easy--way easier than the 10 easy steps post. The hardest part may be realizing you have to go through the tabs in the STARTSSL control panel from right to left. There are some email confirmations to do and I particularly like that it lets you use the firstname.lastname@example.org
for the certificate email address for privacy.
The install on the disk station was easy, using the DiskStation Control Pane HTTPS section, and I even used the intermediate server certificate.
Port 80 and port 443 needed to be forwarded in the router to their same DiskStation ports, in addition to whatever I had set up for DSM access. In my case all other ports are accessed via VPN.
That's how I did it.
