I have registered a domain and I would like to point this domain to my home computer which it is using adsl with dynamic ip address.

More info: My router has dyndns client and my computer uses linux.

Could anyone point me in the right direction please?

This question came from our site for pro webmasters.

Why is this home use question more suited to than webmasters? – dunxd Jan 11 '11 at 12:58
Not sure why the OP got a negative vote. If it came from SF, it's not the OPs fault it got migrated to the wrong place. It appears he actually asked it in the correct location. – GregD Jan 11 '11 at 13:21

I did this by setting up as a CNAME pointing to . My router keeps the dyndns information current. Make sure you keep the ttl field low in your zone file, so any changes get picked up quickly.

Setup your router to update a dyndns domain and then cname your domain to it.
