I agree with Emerald. I've been testing out quite a few different providers since DynDNS decided to stop doing the free account. No-IP.com is pretty good. They've got a really well developed system thats pretty simple. Not surprising considering that they also do 'pay-for' services. The difference is that they DO still have free accounts.

In case anyone is dead set on using DynDNS (or is forced to due to pre-programmed firmwares using it), you CAN actually still get a free DynDNS account. I found that D-Link actually has a deal with them to still offer a single free hostname. Check out my findings here: http://boomshadow.net/tech/how-to-still-get-a-free-dynd...

Well technically you can still get a free account, but they just changed their terms of service so that you have to log in to your account once a month and automated update clients don't count. Not worth the aggravation if there are free alternatives out there.

As has been said, DynDNS now requires a monthly login to their webpage, or your service will be cut off. It is theirs to do with whatever they want, and I will no longer recommend or use the service. Goodbye DynDNS. I am looking at freedns.afraid.org, yet hope to find a PHP script that I can install on my DreamHost account and point one of my own subdomains to the house, effectively becoming my own DynDNS service.
