It'll work fine, but did you hear dyndns is no longer free?

To quote a recent tweet "If you're hosting a website with #OpenSSL on a #XP machine behind a #DynDNS hostname, it's a bad day for you" :D

Dyndns are removing the free version pretty soon though:

For the last 15 years, all of us at Dyn have taken pride in offering you and millions of others a free version of our Dynamic DNS Pro product. What was originally a product built for a small group of users has blossomed into an exciting technology used around the world.

That is why with mixed emotions we are notifying you that in 30 days, we will be ending our free hostname program. This change in the business will allow us to invest in our customer support teams, Internet infrastructure, and platform security so that we can continue to strive to deliver an exceptional customer experience for our paying customers.

We would like to invite you to upgrade to VIP status for less than $20 -- a 25% discount good for any package of Remote Access (formerly DynDNS Pro). By doing so, you'll have access to customer support, additional hostnames, and more.

First logmein, now dyndns :cry:

http://freedns.afraid.org still have a free non-expiring service.

NoIP have a free service but with a 30 day nagging captcha.

Yes, damn them! After 13 years I'm loosing all my dynamic dns addresses. And they've bought some of their competitors as well. But there are still some free alternate services around.

Funny how we feel betrayed when a good free service closes
- we haven't paid them any money over the years, yet don't feel obliged to move to the paid version.

I'm guilty of that too.

At best this kind of thing is a betrayal. The free users are a significant proportion of our costs. See how much money we could save if we just cut them off!

At worst it is the deliberate business model from the start. Set up a "free" service that you know is unsustainable. Drive competitors out of the market. Persuade major router manufacturers to support and promote your service. Sign up as many free customers as possible. Then, when they are dependent on you, force them to start paying. Who cares how many millions of people we inconvenience, as long as some of them end up paying us $25 pa?

Either way, this should damage a company's reputation more than it generally seems to. It has happened repeatedly.

The important lesson is not to sign up for any service that is too low priced to be true. Or at least, do not become dependent on it. Expect it to close or become dramatically more expensive.

I've been using http://www.duckdns.org/ for about six months without issue. It's also free and has a setup specifically for the Pi to keep your IP address up to date.

Thanks for that. Just a shame that they don't support IPv6 addresses with AAAA records.

I got fed up of the free Dynamic DNS turning into paid for or time-out specials and fudged my own.

http://www.pluggy.me.uk/homeserver

I have my own external webserver and made folder homeserver on it. Then I have BASH script that reads the external IP and crafts an index file to redirect to the ip address and FTPs it up to the external server. Runs every few minutes from a cron job. To show my displeasure to dyndns who was the first, I use their check IP service to determine the IP address.

http://checkip.dyndns.com

The BASH script creates a file with

Code: Select all

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/">
where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address plucked from the earlier link.

If you go for no-ip as mentioned above, you can actually use the raspberry pi as an update client. I did this with mine, until my new router came with built in update software:

I have a good experience with Noip.

A note for those who have Pis connected via cellular modem, using a DNS name won't work because cellular providers use double NAT. Therefore, there is no way to actively connect to your devices over the internet is those cases.
