Changing start order of daemons

I need to change the boot order of 1 of my daemons.
ddclient is been startet before the machine is online and fails to update my DNS record. As far as i can tell it would be best to lett it start after the network daemon is online. Any ideas how i can get this done ?

If it's configured as a service, have a look under /etc/rc.d/rc5.d (Assuming you are on runlevel 5, otherwise just change the number accordingly)

You should see your service listed with a S?? number in front. This is the start order, you might change this to a larger number for it to start later. Max is S99.
