I just want to add calendar, contacts,mail, profile manager and host websites plus owncloud. I have a domain name with godaddy. www.example.com I have a statc ip address 100.100.100.100 My mac mini server at home is using the ipaddress 10.0.1.10 (Under Networks Ethernet 10.0.1.10) Now I set my host name on my server to my domain name www.example.com I have 6 services reachable at 100.100.100.100 When I click on details, it shows. Status: enabled External IP address: 100.100.100.100 Public host name: None ( darkened) (when I click on refresh it shows this servers hostname resolves to an ip address that does not match this server.)
