I use that with ddclient to update the IP address for my blog.
Are there other free alternatives?
Some routers have built-in support for DDNS, so you don't even have to
run ddclient or similar. My ASUS router lists these under
I only looked at a couple before deciding to use the free service from
ASUS that is included with the router, so I don't know which of the
above are actually free. The domain name is not pretty:
[yourhostname].asuscomm.com, but that doesn't bother me for my usage.
The biggest problem is that if I ever switch to another brand of modem,
I have to suffer another change in service and domain name.
