How to Link a Domain Name to a Dynamic IP - Closure
(Page 4 of 4 )
We’ve just arrived at the end of this article. Hopefully, you’ve found it informative and educational. By now you should feel prepared and ready to set up a DDNS account, install the ddclient, and enjoy the flexibility without feeling hindered by the fact that your ISP provides “only” dynamic IP address possibilities.
In this article we started by introducing the concept of DNS and DDNS, explained why these are so-called “necessities,” and showed how we can use them in order to accomplish our goals. We also presented a few applicable real-world solutions that you can try out right away.
Moreover, we mentioned that many of today’s networking components, such as routers, contain DDNS features already built into their firmware (which is a computer program embedded in microcontrollers and/or flash ROMs).
It does not matter how we solve the dilemma of running a server with a frequently changing IP as long as it satisfies our needs and the whole world can reach our server based on our domain name. Thus, here’s a list of other alternate services to DynDNS: ZoneEdit, easyDNS, changeIP, No-IP, and so forth. Personally I’ve had great experience with No-IP’s services, ZoneEdit and, of course, the earlier presented DynDNS.
