The details in this article need updating as the dynDNS page looks so different and I could not figure out which service I needed for Service Type: host with IP address.
Can you show us how to set this up again please?

Just visit the website but there is no free service! They only give you a 30-day-trial period and you mush enter credit card info!
Is there any alternative???

Thanks!

Hi,

I have an app called uAlertMe that some users are wanting more help with the dyndns.com configuration. Rather than rewrite your great post, I'd like to link to it from my support page (that I can't mention here due to your spam filter).

I've already provided links to it via email to several people.

Do you have any objections?

Thanks

Might want to also point out that on some ISPs, setting up a web server on your home Mac can be a violation of their Nazi-like terms of service. (See yesterday's Colbert Report.)

Great post. Although I didn't feel like you really sold me on *why* I'd want to do this. Here are some reasons:

You want to SSH into your Mac remotely
You want to host a web server
YOu want to host a mail server
You want access to remote desktop
You want to stream media to your iOS devices
