Dynamic Name Servers


Is there a way to launch a name server with a dynamic IP? I can't register my IP as a name server with DynDNS because its dynamic. Is there still a way I can have my own nameservers?

Thanks,

it's potentially possible to use an ISP assigned hostname as a dns server ip, but really that just sucks. personally i use zoneedit.com to control my dns domains (you get 5 for free) other people use noip.com dynsdns.org etc... most have a form of update client which will phone home automatically and update dns servers if you IP changes.

well you could use dyndns to host a dns server address if you want to. you use a dyndns domain to host dns records for mydns.dyndns.com and get your domain registrar to use that hostname as the dns server for all other domains you wish to host directly. All the while your dyndns host is kept updated nicely, you can serve all other domains yourself, via a basic BIND installation.
