Help hosting a website using a WL-500gP Asus router + a 2GB flash drive Answered
As the title suggests I am trying to host my own website by using the device combo mentioned in the title. So far I managed to create a DNS hostname free from www.dyndns.com mostly because of my Dynamic IP address. I also managed to get the router to update the IP in dynds' database. The problem is that whenever I type in the hostname in the addressbar the router's login page shows up instead of the website (and I do understand why this is). The website itself is stored on the flash drive connected to the router via USB. I think that by typing ftp://my-hostname.dyndns.org/path-to-the-html-file-on-the-flashdrive I can view the website but this is not very easy to remember so I doubt any person wanting to visit my site is going to remember the path.
Is there a way to make my website show up when typing the hostname instead of the router's login page?
And if not can I atleast, in some way, redirect people to the html file?
