You likely have to open the port on your router (port forwarding).

Hosting your own server shouldn't be necessary in most cases. The community host many dedicated servers, which you can join and then set options/map/etc in the same way you would your own.

I found my online multiplayer games I created were not being advertised online but it only took me changing a box in the menu. I would not mess with anything important without trying the menu. I think it is in advanced tab and it should be easy to find the box I mean then check the box. I don't think it's uncheck. I had the same issue no game advertised online but that sorted it out
