Subdomain forwarding with mask leads to white page

I host a discourse site on my server and point a port of my public IP to this site with IP fire. Then in Godaddy, I forward a sub-domain to MYIP:PORT with mask but get a white page. I tested it without mask and it works well. Does anyone have some idea?

Yes, if you configure the 'server' to accept requests for the domain.  That would be the proper way to point a domain, no masking needed.

Don't use masking.  It is an outdated browser 'hack' that has been depreciated in web standards.

But we do not want users to see the raw ip address and the port to the server.  How can we achieve that without masking?

OK, I found this link which may help us taking care of masking on the server side -

Please kindly let us know if we are on the right track.
