  • Hi,
    you can only arrange a redirection of your domain from the hoster of your own domain name to your homeserver.com domain (if he offers this feature in the domain configuraiton tool).
    This gives you (with some limitations) the chance to access your home server with your other address.
    All other solutions would require a fixed IP address for your routers external interface, which can be costly dependend from the ISP.
