There comes a time when your network is sometimes setup so your Synology Disk Station Manager uses Port 80/443 to host the websites ran directly from your Synology. But, sometimes you may have a separate internal website that you would like to be accessible from port 80. For instance, you may have a private web page setup on a Raspberry Pi or a separate development server.
Fortunately, the latest versions of Synology DSM make this easy.
