I asked this a long time ago but never got it resolved.
I am using a static IP for ownCloud and want to save money be going to a dynamic IP.
Is using a service like DynDNS all I really to handle this? I already have a URL so that is not a problem.
I have always had a Static IP so I am not sure how that would work using an Dynamic IP.
I like thing simple.
Can you point me in the right direction?
As @chacho mentioned, freedns works fine I’ve been using it for a very long time… I even use SSL provided by Cerbot ( Let’s Encrypt ) for free and it all just works nicely…
So I’m fully encrypted for https and I have my own domain in use thanks to freedns… you just have to login to freedns every once in a while or they will shut you down, they always send out an email in advance with plenty of warning… login and you’re good to go… there are scripts for windows to update your DNS, scripts for Linux, mac… etc… for me, it’s a function built into my router.
