How to configure a 123-reg domain with DynDNS and a linux server? Hi,

I've just set up a CentOS web server running lamp, purchased a domain from 123-reg and have signed up for DynDNS standard.

I'm really confused how I get the domain to link in with Dyn.

The client updater is working fine and I can access the website from the public IP, but whenever I go to the domain it just tells me it's a 123-reg domain.

Does anyone know how I can resolve this?

Btw, I'm running a dynamic IP

Dynamic IP? Are you hosting this from home? – Tom O'Connor Jan 21 '12 at 11:06

You need to transfer the domain to DynDNS. Right now, it is probably pointing to 123-reg's NS servers.

DynDNS' Support Site will have all the information you need:

If you are setting up a business from home, you might want to contact your ISP regarding a static public IP
