Your post prompted me to look into nsupdate.info so I did and I couldn't figure out how to use it.
For future info or anyone else that's interested:
NOTE: Every time you go to the Show Configuration page a new Host Secret, (for update login), is generated rendering the old one invalid.
- Create an account
- Go to Overview
- Add a host (eg. fred.nsupdate.info)
- Click on your newly created host name - you can Delete, manually update IP, etc here
- Click on Show Configuration - you'll be taken to a page that will provide HTTPS links for updating either your IPv4 or IPv6, (which you can bookmark to update your IP via browser), plus instructions for various router firmware and/or DDNS clients.
Thanks for this! It came time for me to renew my Dyn service and I didn't feel it was worth $40/year just so I could have a domain name point to my current IP. And it looks like my router (running DD-WRT) also supports automatically updating nsupdate.info, so it's great for me.
So yeah, since my last post here where I said all the things I subscribe to, I no longer pay for LastPass, and instead have bought a lifetime license to EnPass. I no longer use DynDNS and now use nsupdate.info. I no longer use HostGator, instead opting for Hostwinds.com. I still buy/renew my domain(s) through DreamHost... For now.
