I am searching for some tool like a DynDNS updater - but I am looking for a free one. The tool should report the IP change of the server, so I can access it always. Is there any free tool/service which support this ? Thank you.

    Why is your server changing IP? It shouldn't. If you're talking about being able to access your home PC from anywhere, then this belongs on SuperUser.com

Check your router as some routers have this function build in..


DynDNS has a free updated client, or you can update it from many consumer routers.


You can use the afraid.org and it has many free clients to update the IP and if you have a dd-wrt it has support for it.

  • +1 for afraid.org. You can choose hundreds of domains to use or even your owh (all for free)..

yey, no-ip.org ... it´s free (just subdomains like hello123.no-ip.org). u can intall it form debian using apt-get install no-ip. U first must register at www.no-ip.org


  • I use a free no-ip subdomain and use a $3/month shared hosting with my own domain name to check if my server is online, and redirect appropriately. Really important things have a copy on my shared hosting as well.

EveryDNS used to have this, but I switched to DynDNS because I found out my router has support for DynDNS.
