I have not used dynamic DNS in a very, very long time. I think the last time was back at the end of the 90's or the beginning 00's. Most (if not all) of the services I used at the time do not exist anymore. I happily noticed that my DNS and domain provider offers a DynDNS service. My new EdgeRouter 4 has a built-in DynDNS client, supporting multiple protocols.
