Are you wondering how to access your Synology web server? Look no further!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to access your Synology web server and manage it with ease. Let’s get started.

Step 1: Connect to your Synology NAS

To access your Synology web server, you need to connect to your Synology NAS (Network Attached Storage) device. Make sure your NAS is connected to the network and powered on.

Open a web browser on your computer and enter the IP address of your NAS in the address bar. Hit Enter.

Step 2: Enter your credentials

After entering the IP address, you will be directed to the login page of your Synology DSM (DiskStation Manager). Enter your username and password in the respective fields. If you haven’t set up a username and password yet, please refer to the documentation provided with your NAS for instructions on how to do so.

Step 3: Accessing the Web Server

Once logged in, navigate to the “Package Center” on the DSM interface. Here, you can find various applications that can be installed on your NAS. Search for “Web Station” and click on it.

Enabling Web Station

On the Web Station page, click on “Enable.” This will activate the web server functionality on your Synology NAS.

Create a Website

Next, click on “Virtual Host” from the left sidebar menu. Here, you can create a virtual host for hosting multiple websites if needed.

To create a new website, click on “Create” and follow the instructions provided. You can specify a domain name or use a subdomain under if you don’t have one.

Upload Your Website Files

Once the virtual host is set up, you can start uploading your website files. Click on “Web Services” from the left sidebar menu and then select “Virtual Host Settings.”

Here, you can find the path to your web server’s root directory. Use an FTP client or the DSM File Station to upload your website files to this directory.

Step 4: Accessing Your Website

After uploading your website files, you can access your Synology web server by entering the domain name or IP address associated with your virtual host in a web browser. Voila! You have successfully accessed your Synology web server.
