Self-hosted Server accessible over Internet - Caddy 2

Easily and securely make your home server accessible over Internet, using HTTPS and Caddy 2.

Here is a video tutorial I made, where I explain everything in very simple terms.

For beginners and advanced users alike, Caddy 2 is THE ULTIMATE SERVER.  You can use it as a reverse proxy to safely access all of your self-hosted home server applications over the internet, with automatic HTTPS. Just combine it with Port Forwarding and a Dynamic DNS (DDNS).

Replace and simplify many other server applications like NGINX, Apache, HA Proxy, Traefik and Lets Encrypt.  Caddy is powerful, feature-packed and very easy to use.
