Do you know that you can use your custom domain name to access your Synology NAS from all over the world? Even easier and faster if you already have a working WordPress site running on the NAS. First of all, register your domain name with Godaddy or with any other domain provider.

Go to Control Panel/Security/Certificate/Edit. Follow the instructions in the image below:
