I've changed the domain name of my site

Posted 07-15-2013 at 06:53 AM by Pyplate

I was using a free domain name supplied by, the dynamic DNS provider that I use. This looked unprofessional, and it was hurting my search engine ranking.

I bought a new domain name, and instead of using a dynamic DNS service, I just pointed it to my external IP. My ISP is known for hardly ever changing people's IP address. It's a risk to not use a dynamic DNS service, but I think it's a small risk.

My site currently uses a CMS that I've written myself....
