i am thinking to set up a web server at home but just found out yesterday that my ISP is blocking port 80 on my network and they won't open it unless i upgrade my internet service... which :mad:

i am not sure if there is any other way get this solved. If I port forward my site at my web server to (let say) 85, when someone type www.mysite.com (with 80 by default), will it be somewhat in the cloud or some server to NAT 80 to 85 at my site? In short, can one type www.mysite.com instead of www.mysite.com:85? If so, what need to be done?

Thanks a lot of a lot for your reply!!

You already said what needs to be done: upgrade your internet service. Or, you could put your site on a hosting service.

In general residential internet service is mostly for importing data, not exporting it. That's why the service is almost always provisioned with much greater download than upload bandwidth.

Closing as you are asking how to circumvent a valid restriction.
