Use OctoPi with a custom domain


I would like to use OctoPrint (installed on my raspberry pi 3b), with a custom domain name, so I can access it from outside of my home. I know I can just use my external IP and port forward, which I have tried, but I think it would be nicer to just go to a website instead of typing the IP.

I have tried to link my IP to the domain I got on NameCheap. I did this via masked redirecting but because the OctoPrint is HTTP instead of HTTPS I could not pass the login page. I have also searched around a bit but I could not find anything that worked for me.

If anyone could maybe share a "simple" way to achieve this it would be great.
