^^^^ Hi,
Pi3Web supports any IP address but this is your problem. If you run Pi3Web
'Remotly using a hostname' just enter 'localhost' in the corresponding edit
field of the admin GUI page 'General'. Your problem is to let other people

2.) Use a program that publish dynamic IP adress via uploading a Website with
    the address to your ISP's host (you must have your own web site on the ISP's
