dnydns.org questions


Hi, not really sure where to go for advice on this, so I thought I would ask some fellow Linux people.

I registered a dynamic domain name with dyndns.org, however... since registering, I have noticed I have much more of a static IP address and was wondering if anyone knows how to go about changing from their dynamic service to their static one. Both are free services, and i was not about to find any support on their website about it. The only idea I saw, was to delete my current dynamic domain from them, and then try to recreate it under their static listing.

Thanks, and if this is the wrong place, just point me to a better location to ask this question.

It is all easily done after logging into your account on dyndns.org. Personally I had a dynamic domain name for my home comp and after a few months I got an email from dyndns.org that I should change my name to static since I didn't update it often enough, or they would delete the dynamic name. I have had any problems with the static service and you can always change your IP even with static.
