Ok so I'm running a server on Linode (Ubuntu 14.04, Apache2) I am redirecting the domain from 1and1.com to Linode(Linked to Linode's nameservers) via HTTP redirection to the IP of my server. (http://255.255.255.255)
On the Linode side, I have the domain zone set in this format: domain.com And the reverse DNS is connecting to both IPv4 and IPv6.
All seems to be connecting and working great, however.. the website will run on any device on my network PERFECTLY. But, whenever I send the link to a device outside of my network, I get this error: Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
I have tested it on multiple browsers/devices/operating systems and it's always the same outcome. (mind you, the error is worded differently in each browser.)
What do I need to do to fix this?
Also, sorry I didn't give more information, I'm not sure what info you will need, so if you ask I shall provide. Thanks.
PS: I've been stuck on this for days and have tried what seems to be every thing I can find on Google.
EDIT: As requested, here are the steps I took from the beginning.
I followed this guide step by step: https://www.linode.com/docs/websites/hosting-a-website/
I uploaded my files to /var/www/domain.com/public_html/
I installed fail2ban and followed the firewall step in the "securing your server" guide that is also on Linode. (I cannot post more than 1 link due to lack of reputation)
And then I set up the DNS as stated in the original question.
