Dyndns: a great dynamic dns host
I use to use dns2go for my dynamic dns needs. The problem I had once that they only allow you to have one dynamic domain. The problem I have is during development I can’t stand doing development within a subdirectory of my main site. Why? Because it’s a pain when you have to create mappings for every client because each client will not be in it’s own root directory.
Enter Dyndns. Their free service allows you to have 5, not 1, dynamic domain name. Also they allow wildcards!!! What this means is that your can register mydomain.dyndns.org and then create client.mydomain.dyndns.org. So in essence you have an unlimited amount of domains that you can create. The best part is that you can give each of your client that your developing for, their own root directory.
An even better reason to use this service, is playing around with different frameworks. Let’s say your writing a website for a client in Mach-ii 1.1.1, but want to play with Mach-ii 1.5.0. If you couldn’t have separate root directories you couldn’t have both on the same server. But with root directories you can drop 1.1.1 in one root and 1.5.0 in another and not have to create any mappings!
