External Ipaddress and Dynamic DNS (Domain Name Service)

Most ISP’s will change your external ipaddress, sometimes on a weekly basis. When your ipaddress changes it will require you to notify the users that connect to your server of the new address. To prevent this you can sign-up for a Dynamic-DNS name. (ex: www.myserver.com) There are many companies that provide this service, sometimes free-of-charge. Using your favorite search engine, perform a search for “dynamic dns”. Here are a couple of examples:
