Dyn to End its Free Service

Written by John Dray (CEO)

10th April 2014

Many of you who have grown up with the internet will be aware of the DynDNS service.

This allowed you to host services from home and get to them with a website address that ended .dyndns.com (or one of a variety of other endings). Mine was jd10k.dyndns.com.

Very soon it will be no more. Dyn want you to subscribe to their ‘Pro’ service, at $25 per year! (There is a temporary, discount.)

There are other options. A similar free service is provided by no-ip for free!

But perhaps you were hosting your email and/or website from home (not the best idea), in that case you might want to check out our low-priced email and web services on WebHost. You may want to add a personal domain name to that, too. You can do all that and still save on the price of the Dyn offering (and a personal domain name will look far more professional).

Anyway, there are lots of better options that signing up for Dyn’s service. Good luck!

Time for a change.
