  1. Isn’t it easier just to use domain forwarding? On Google Domains it’s as simple as adding the DDNS address you want your domain to forward to. Example, http://domain.net forwards to http://ds218.synology.me.

    I have a domain solely for accessing the DiskStation DSM so its easier to remember and type, and domain forwarding is super simple.
