Best way to run subdomain on home system


#1

I am looking for tips on the best way to run a subdomain server from home. I have my site at DH. My cable modem at home is a dynamic ip setup. Is there any automated ways to update the DNS settings at DH if/when my home ip changes?

TIA.

get an account at dyndns.org or a similar service so that you can get a domain name from them. There are programs you can use with it (they suggest a few) to automatically update your settings.

Yeah, gotta use a Dynamic DNS service for that. How often does your IP change? I know my cable company advertises my cable is dynamic, but in 2 and a half years I’ve had it, it never changed once.
