    There are a number of considerations for you here:

    1. For SSH access to your server, you need to open a port in your firewall (hardware or software) - it's also a good idea to use a non-default port, and to have access restrictions (i.e. only from certain IP ranges etc.)
    2. Per the above, you should secure your SSH connection as good as possible - for instance see "Tweak #4" in this video
    3. Getting a static IP address is a concern between you and your ISP - and that's if they offer that option at all
    4. Alternatively, you can use Dynamic DNS (DDNS) to set to your current IP address - this will require setup with a DNS provider
    5. You should also consider setting up a reverse proxy with SSL certificates, so your domain will be instead of - for this I use Nginx Proxy Manager
    6. Consider running your services with Docker and Portainer - this makes everything much easier (for me at least)

    Also, is there any specific reason you installed 18.04 instead of 20.04 (I'm just curious)?
