Maintaining your own web server is not easy, especially if you do not have a fixed IP address.
DynDNS Updater helps make life easier by connecting the IP address of your computer to the DNS of your web page automatically. So, no matter how many times your IP changes, your DNS will always be linked to your computer because the new IP will always synchronize with your account at DynDNS.com. Of course, this means that you have to set up an account at DynDNS first.
DynDNS Updater allows you to configure up to five different DNS domains and a handy widget allows you to access the history of changes and settings from the Dashboard. The obvious downside is that you need to sign-up to access it.
DynDNS Updater is a simple but innovative solution for people that have to manage web servers without a static address.
- Fixed issue causing daemon to not start on boot up in OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). Fixed a bug that could cause a deadlock when initializing SSL in some rare cases. Fixed a bug that would cause the updater to say "The DynDNS Updater daemon was installed but could not be launched" when the install had actually failed. Changed how the path is determined when installing the daemon to be a little more resilient.
