The instructions on how to create a public server are listed in our FAQ.

How do I make a public room?

To make a public room, follow these steps: 1. If you and the people you are playing with are on different wifi networks, setup port forwarding in your router settings. 2. Go to Multiplayer in the menu bar, and click Create Room. 3. Enter the name of your room to be shown in the public listing and chat window, your preferred nickname, the game that will be played, an optional password if you need it, and the max number of players that can join the room. Unless you know you need it, you shouldn’t have to touch the port number. 4. Click Host Room to create the room.

You probably haven’t forwarded the proper port in your router settings.

And how would I go about doing that? I can’t fins anything helpful online about it either.

There is https://portforward.com/. Port forwarding will vary slightly depending on router and you will want to assign a static IP address for yourself beforehand.
