(Free) dynamic dns?


Question

whitebread

I have a domain registered with GoDaddy.com . I want to host content from my home PC. I used to have a free program which dynamically updated nameservers with my current IP, but I can't remember what it is called.

Even if I have to pay a small fee, I suppose that's ok. How can i achieve this?

You have to "reconfirm" the free DynDNS if you don't get any hits monthly, but it works well. My router has support for it built-in.

I was sure there was a free version of dyndns, and even google results showed free, but I couldnt see the option once I was on their site

They still offer a free version, but you can only set 1 dynamic address per account now.

What's more, the free version needs to be "renewed" monthly by clicking a link unless you run their auto-update software (that sets your IP on their servers) which you want to do anyways.

https://www.dyndns.com/account/services/hosts/

That's where I control everything from, so if you have an account I'm sure your options will be in there.

Good luck :)

Simon-

Just confirming that your home internet connection has a Dynamic IP rather than a Static IP?

Just need to check that you are asking the right thing.

I use DynDNS but apparently they don't offer a free option anymore.

The other service I use and works very well too is << spam >>. You need to confirm you are using your account (by just clicking a link inside an email) every one or two months though but it's not a problem.

You can download their dynamic client so the ip changes are automatically reflected on your host.

They used to allow you to use one of their free subdomains along with other subdomains that gave you a youraddress.dyndns.org etc.. They also offered an update client for dynamic ip's but I can not find either now on their site.

      AT&T is offering affordable wireless data plans to teachers and students
      by Usman Khan Lodhi



      Remote schooling has become the new norm amidst the coronavirus pandemic. However, not everyone is privileged enough to be able to participate in digital learning due to the unavailability of a stable internet connection. AT&T recognizes this, and its latest offerings are aimed to mitigate these worries.

      AT&T is offering free wireless data service, which includes free hotspots, to teachers at K-12 schools, colleges, and universities across the U.S., in addition to lifting data caps. However, the service can only be availed for free if most of the students in the class use AT&T, as the offer entails that teachers will only get one line of free service for every 24 students activating a discounted $15 plan.

      The offer will last until December 29, and schools that add at least one eligible line will be able to activate other lines under the same pricing until it ends on December 29, 2022. AT&T is incentivizing teachers, even those that don't sign up for the offer, to take advantage of a 25 percent discount on regular wireless plans for themselves and their families.

      AT&T has also announced a $10 million commitment to support "most vulnerable students, who don't have adequate internet access and are disconnected from learning." Under this initiative, students will be provided with internet access and Wi-Fi hotspots. In the coming weeks, districts and non-profit organizations will be invited to apply for support, the blog post read.
