I'd like to setup my own dynamic DNS server on a VPS running Ubuntu. Nginx is installed and a domain connected. The ideal result would be to create a subdomain and have that handle the dynamic DNS part, so that a simple ping is redirected to the IP the subdomain points to. I believe that would be an A Record that I need to set for that, right? Is that possible in Nginx? Or do I have to do that with Bind?
I already searched for stepwise tutorials, but haven't found anything useful for Nginx. I'm also kind of on an entry level in Nginx and also in Bind.
Is there an easy way to create a dynamic DNS server with Nginx?
