Basically, I have a domain mydomain.com hosted by a certain hosting company on its servers. I have access to the cpanel and can make changes a s per required. However, I want to host a dvr remote interface on one of its pages. The DVR is in my office which has a dynamic IP address. I first thought of using the numerous free DDNS services available. But then since I already own a domain name I thought of using that one. How do I do it?
I would use a dynamic DNS service just for their provided hostname. Say they give you
You can create a
CNAME record in dns to point a hostname at that dyndns.com hostname. It would look something like
subdomain IN CNAME dvr-103.dyndns.com.
Pretty much in cpanel create a new host of type CNAME and just point it to the the hostname provided by the dynamic DNS service. That way you can always type subdomain.yourdomain.com and hit the dvr since dns will lookup the ip of the dyndns.com host
You won't get around using a dynamic DNS service. Just point subdomomain.mydomain.com to whatever.dyndnsprovider.com.
