My server doesn't have a static ip so every time I boot the server, I have to tell my friends which is the ip.
Now I have a web server I'm renting out for websites and testing, with port 80 opened (plus probably a few others I guess), so I'm wondering if there is a way to create a subdomain for example http://game.domain.com that would redirect to my other server automatically by using .htaccess so I could just change it there and my friends would only have one address to remember.
I'm just concerned that the game traffic will constantly pass through my webserver, like a proxy and lag everyone. Am I correct?
Is there a way to do this with the game being redirected then finally use the end IP address, kind of like a permanent redirect once the connection has been established?
