Namecheap’s free DYNDNS

Stumbled upon Namecheaps free DYNDNS service this morning, and I can’t be more impressed.

All I did was buy a 0.66 cent domain



Enabled the Dynamic DNS in the Advanced DNS settings:

Dynamic DNS
Dynamic DNS

Then added the client to my home media server:

Windows: Direct Update
Mac: NC DNS Updater, IP Monitor
Unix: DDClient , IPCheck
Other: Java Dynamic DNS Client, IPCheck for OS/2

I was never a fan of DYNDNS or NO IP for some reason, I loved DuckDNS, but I was looking for something cleaner. This is the perfect solution to use with my home media server  / file server.
