I want my self hosted things to use https. For example, I have Jellyfin installed via docker, and I want it to use https instead of http.

I don’t care about necessarily doing this the “right” way, as I won’t be making Jellyfin or any other service public, and will only be using it on my local network.

What is the easiest way to do this? Assume everything I host is in docker. Also a link to a tutorial would be great.

Thanks!

    This assumes ownership of a domain if I’m not mistaken.

    Otherwise, yes this is the easiest way.

      There are dyndns providers that support the DNS challenge that have free tiers. Those are sufficient, and you can even get wildcard certs for your subdomain that way. Perfectly sufficient for a homelab.

          Yes exactly. I didn’t wanna name-drop them cause they are closed for new dynDNS signups. You can create an account to manage your own domain, but you currently can’t signup for their dynDNS service, unfortunately.

          That being said, I would still highly recommend them for managing your own domain, if you’re looking for a place to host literally just the DNS part.

      If needed you could use a subdomain from a free dyndns provider. And if you’re going to be self hosting stuff having your own domain is probably good anyway.

      That is correct, the domain would need to be purchased in this case.
