Question

Posted

Hey

I want to setup using Dynamic DNS my ip to a FQDM with something free. I think DynDNS gave this service for free back in the day but now is just a trial.

I have a DD-WRT router if it helps it setup any better.

Thank you!

Thank you :)


To those that posted (and will post more) is there any reason I should use that one instead of another? Im also located in West Europe if it makes differences for speed :)

Static IP, No-IP and others (unfortunately not many routers have native clients) or I believe that you can sign up for trial using credit card, and then you can choose to change Trial to Free.

are you talking about options like:

google's public DNS ? 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4
Or openDNS ?

No, he's talking about updating a DNS server to point at a dynamic IP address.

Useful for making a domain name for home connections :)

I'm still using DynDNS because I'm OLD :p Works great, but that's not much help for you :\

"Check in" what sense? I have to send them a email or something?

I think they send you an email every 30 days, and you have to simply click on a link to verify you are still actively using their free stuff.

I still have an active .ath.cx ~ have since 2004 (not that this helps you). DYNDNS (or No-IP) is definately going to be your best bet here.

That's how mine works, 30 days and I get an email, except I installed the "DynUpdater" client on my server, so it just does it for me >.<

I have no idea if it's still available. Not going to let mine lapse in that case :p

DD-WRT might be able to do it automatically :)

Thanks to all. No-ip it is I guess.

The router dyn DNS function only refreshes the ip in the dns. You will still have to click the link in the mailer login to the website to verify you're still active.

It is a DynDNS Pro trial for 14-days (Need CC to sign up), then "If you decide not to continue with Pro,just cancel your Pro trial within the first 14 days and you will not be charged. You may keep one hostname free of charge for trying the Pro Trial." so the one free hostname for trying is the same as the old DynDNS Free, "permanently". It probably has the same 30-day expiry rules but an auto-update client would negate that as it did before.

Who is your domain registered with? if its namecheap they have a free dynamic dns service that will update your domain for you.

Its also supported in the Tomato custom firmware for routers, unsure about DD-WRT.
