I use DynDNS.com 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, homepc.dyndns.com will always point to my home PC ... easy.
But Is it possible to do the same with mydomain.com ? 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 ? homepc.mydomain.com ??
I can handle the programming part that will update the IP , but how long will it take to propagate ?
You can set www.domain.com and domain.com to go to your web site, and homepc.domain.com to be a dynamically updated, dynamic DNS A record pointing to your home PC.
This is all available free of charge.
