I’m trying to accomplish two things that I seem to being having some trouble with.
1). I have a fully hosted domain on Dreamhost. I also believe I registered it through DreamHost too. It’s using the standard DreamHost nameservers (ns1.dreamhost.com, ns2.dreamhost.com, ns3.dreamhost.com).
Now what I want to do is create a subdomain of that fully hosted DreamHost domain, like sub.domain.com, have this be the address that I use DDNS to access a dynamic IP that hosts a surveillance system.
For the DDNS I am using ZoneEdit, because it was recommended to me and it is supported in DD-WRT (the firmware I’m using on the router the surveillance system is connected). I’m not married to ZoneEdit, and would be open to switching to any other DDNS that is natively supported by DD-WRT (I don’t want to have to install any DDNS software on a system, rather keep in in the router).
How exactly do I do this? I have read several different instructions and explanations, but they all seem different and not working.
2). My second question was basically the same as above, except I would be creating a subdomain that would point to a static IP, so I wouldn’t need DDNS. What do I need to know to have the subdomain point to a static IP.
Thanks for any help.
