To get things working on your domain you will have to get the application running on port 80. Currently it’s running on port 8080.

This guide shows how to setup tomcat connections with an SSL. While you do not have to use an SSL, the same process would apply for setting up Apache or Nginx to proxy the Tomcat connection.

I do recommend using an SSL though, as the guide helps do. This improves security of the application and is becoming a more and more important thing within the web world.
