web server at home

I use verizon fios and want to set up web server at home. I have a domain that a record to my home router IP but it is pointing to the verzion admin login webpage. I done some research and look like verizion blocks port 80 for residential use.

Just want to find out anyway I can still do it. I want to host a few website for fun.

Just turn off external management on the router.
It's intercepting everything at port 80.

If you can provide the make and model # of the router, it might be possible to provide more precise directions for doing this.

Mahesh, that's not his issue at all.
His problem isn't that he has a dynamic IP address.   Re-read the question.

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

oh ok, so he already made a record to point to home pc, may be router is blocking all the ports so he cant host the site?
I think he has  the router's external management feature(enabling router management from the WAN) turned on, so port 80 is being intercepted by the router rather than forwarded to the server.
If you're just playing around, try setting up your site on port 81.  Many home ISPs block port 80 to keep home users (who are paying home, rather than business, rates) from running web servers at home.  You'll need to forward port 81 in your router to your actual server if you want to do that.

i am not network guy so I need exact steps' description how to port 81 to the server. My server has only test page so
i just want to show that when I go to e.g. abc.com and port to the IP.
What server are you using?  Likely IIS or Apache, do you know which?
