Dynamic DNS with the Pi

Thu Jul 26, 2012 8:25 pm

New Blog post about setting up your Pi with ddclient and a dynamic DNS server so you can host your own website from your Pi behind your home router.

I've used ddclient with success. The only problem I found is that it used too much precious memory as it uses 'sleep' between scheduled ip checks. What I've done instead is use a python script that I can put in the cron to check checkip.dyndns.org at very regular intervals and update my DNS provider (zoneedit in this case). http://zoneclient.sourceforge.net/

I'm sure there must be other generic scripts out there that can do the same thing for other DNS providers.

Now _that's_ creative thinking. Thanks! Will grab that script when I get home! :-)

If you have a Router supporting DDNS you can setup there, so you avoid installing one more thing on the Pi.
Nr.1 Raspberry Pi Zero W
Nr. 2 Raspberry Pi4 B Pihole 1
Nr. 3 Raspberry Pi3 B+ Pihole 2

You're replying to a post that's 1 year and 9 months old. So no surprises there.

What dynamic DNS service are you trying to use/abuse with your RPi?
