Post Port forward being redirected to the IP instead of the domain itself

Hello,

I'm trying to setup home based web server hosting a wordpress site but my ISP has blocked port 80, so I'm using a different (8880) port for hosting the site, however when I try to add web redirect to forward port 8880, the rule that Dynu is creating is something like - "http://My-Ip-Address:8880" however I was expecting it to be "http://MyDomain:8880", the reason why I need it like this is because of wordpress, if the forward rule is pointing to my IP and in wordpress if I have configured my website URL as http://MyDomain.com then for some reason it only wants to open when I write my full domain name, if I just hit the browser request with my IP it will not open. Can someone please help me out on this? I'm using top level domain instead of a subdomain.

Thanks & Best Regards,
Utkarsh
