Networking - multiple instances with ssl and subdomains [newbie]


Jun 8, 2019
Hello proxmoxers! :)
I am new to the server-world, but want to get right into it!
First things first, I have a server running proxmox with multiple VMs and container. It will soon move into a room, where I get an 1gbit connection and a static public ip address, connected internally via VLAN (I don't have the configs yet - I will get them from my dorm). The most of them should have different subdomains which I will have to configure from a bought domain.

How would I have to setup the DNS entries and what role will proxmox play? What do I need to configure for the routing (for subdomains, ports, etc.) ? It would also be great, to have proxmox as some kind of proxy, where only he needs an SSL certificate and everything will be passed through it - so no SSL configuration will be needed in every single appliance. Do you recommend a service like Cloudflare in between, to secure my server from ddos and other attacks?

Thank you for your help!
