DynDNS cancels free dynamic DNS service



  • Say goodbye to DynDNS

  • I remember when that was all that there was. I stopped using that long, long ago though. DynDNS doesn't seem to be too important anymore, but I'm not sure why.



  • I stopped using them years ago when I switched my personal domain to to Easy DNS; their DNS Hosting package includes dynamic DNS. I'm sure many other DNS/web hosts also support dynamic DNS.



  • I never bothered to move a service that I have had there for basically forever. I am not tied to it, just had no reason to take the time to move it. Now I have to.

    It was often used to host mail servers from residential or business dynamic IP addresses. As things shift to stable, often hosted, infrastructure, the need for dynamically updating external DNS diminishes. It still has uses for low-end failover scenarios.
