    If you want to publicly expose the services on the internet, then you would need something like a reverse proxy. I personally recommend NGINX Proxy Manager which is quite easy to install and to configure. You would also need a domain and an SSL certificate (here I recommend to use Cloudflare which has a very nice free plan which includes a free SSL certificate which is valid up to 15 years). For NGINX Proxy Manager there are quite a few guides on YouTube, I personally followed and liked the ones from [](DB Tech). Traefik is also a reverse proxy but for my personal taste it was too complicated to setup and use.
