DNSdyanmic has been proud to provide DNS services free of charge to the
Internet community at large for the last 7 years. But alas, all good
things must come to an end. Due to time and budget constraints, I've
decided to cease and desist all services on 10/01/2018.
Please take any necessary actions prior to this date to migrate your
services to another provider.
Here's a short list of dynamic DNS providers that provide similar
services. (A google search will provide a much more enumerative list)
Thank you for your support and sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
www.dnsdynamic.org exposes a simple API for updating domains through automated scripts.
The API is compatible with the excellent ddclient using the dyndns2 protocol.
A simple configuration for ddclient would look like this;
daemon=60 # check every 60 seconds
syslog=yes # log update msgs to syslog
mail=root # mail all msgs to root
mail-failure=root # mail failed update msgs to root
pid=/var/run/ddclient.pid # record PID in file.
ssl=yes # use ssl-support. Works with
use=web, web=myip.dnsdynamic.com # get ip from server.
server=www.dnsdynamic.org # default server
firstname.lastname@example.org # default login
password=password # default password
you can download this sample configuration here
just change the login, password and the domain to your own settings.
A simple example to update a domain using the API directly;
All return codes follow the dyndns2 protocol.
