I want to run portainer on instead of ip:9000

Posted May 21, 2021 1.9k views

Dear all,

I have been browsing for a while now, checking some tutorials but I am not sure if they are exactly doing what I want.

I have a docker droplet running, inside I have a portainer container and a metabase container. I would like to run more eventually.

Right now I can only access them with my droplet public IP and port number. However I wish to setup custom subdomains to direct to these adresses:

ip:9000 ->
ip:3000 ->

How can I make sure this works?
