How to use DNS to redirect domain to specific port on my server

This question is similar to the one asked here how do i set the dns server on godaddy with AWS? except that i need little furthur info. My tomcat webserver is running at a port 8080. So the URL looks actually like http://IP:8080. But i godaddy DNS manager it does not allow to mention port. SO how do i forward the DNS name to this IP and then to this specific port

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

DNS Translates Domain to IP.

Port is not a part of that game at all.

OK, but how do i make my URL to go to this IP and to this specific port? Is there any article you can point to? – user1241438 Apr 2 '12 at 23:13
There is no way. (http just "hints" your browser to try port 80, http_s_ dose the same for port 443, ftp for 21 and so on...) – Tabakhase Apr 2 '12 at 23:14
