I was trying out ipcheck script, but if ddclient supports zoneedit, I
might use that instead. One question about zoneedit tho: ddclient
would update the zone info at ZE everytime my ip changes (say at every
bootup, or daily), but would it not require ZE 72 hours for the change
to take effect? How much time does it take for the ip change to take
effect, if say I have a domain with ZE.

I asked my ISP what would be the cost of getting a global/permanent IP
address and the guy said it would be around 150 to 200 USD. Is that a
normal price. How much is normal pricing?
