    Like but with MY domain ?


    I use so that I can always access my home PC (Terminal Server) wherever I am. If i'm at work, or at a client"s place, will always point to my home PC ... easy.

    But Is it possible to do the same with ? What's so different with dyndns's DNS system that makes it's entries expire so often (so that the entire internet always have a fresh copy of it) ?

    My host is running cPanel, can I create such entry in cPanel or WHM ? ??

    I can handle the programming part that will update the IP , but how long will it take to propagate ?

    Thanks !

    Just to clarify a little bit, I do NOT want to point to my home PC,, etc will point to my server (or should I say my account on a server) in a datacenter.

    What I want is to add a custom record to DNS so that points to my home pc, and this IP is dynamic, I must be able to update it and have iot to propagate quickly...

    Thanks !

    Final touch the IP is not "too" dynamic, it changes every week or so ... but NOT every hour !

    I think the author is asking how exactly he can offer a service like What software do they have that he doesn't, that enables them to offer such a service?
    Have you Floble'd today?

    The tricks is to set a low TTL on the record (TimeToLive). That way the record(sub-domain) can't be cached for long on any remote DNS.

    Another possibility is, to set a CNAME record of your domain towards the DynDNS domain ...
    Just an idea
