Hi i have the domian xtcservers.co.uk with 123reg.co.uk, and a few dyndns.com addresses.
i found out if i leave it default to there name servers an just cname to my dyndns.com address it will work.
i have successfuly setup http://img.xtcservers.co.uk with a cname pointing to pic-stick.at.cx, working fine. using apache vertual hosts.
here is the setup page from 123reg.co.uk for my DNS;
what i want to know is if i can point xtcservers.co.uk to a dynamic address without web forwording.
i dont want to use WWW as a cname as then only www.xtcservers.co.uk would work not http://xtcservers.co.uk

So if I understand you right you want to create the record:
@ IN CNAME pic-stick.at.cx.
For now I'd suggest you use the www CNAME and point your main domain at any shared hosting account (low cost or free, potentially) where you just redirect to www.
Edit: This result from the Google search is interesting if you're feeling brave!
