Dynamic DNS at DynamicSide.NET
I’ve put up a working Dynamic DNS solution. Record update is immediate. Though your ISP/system/browser DNS cache might make you wait 10-15 minutes.
Mail and Web-Forwarding functionality have been temporarily disabled. But the dynamic dns part is good to go…
Create an account, and try it out.
*.dynside.net sub-domains are out for the time being — as I deal with our new DNS situation… but if you have a registered domain name, and can point it with your registrar to nameservers ns1.dynside.net and ns2.dynside.net, you are good to go.
I’m going to have to lose the Host’s nameserver entries for dynside.net, and just do my own authoritative DNS entirely. Not the best situation, but its the only way I can give away sub-domains, without entering a wildcard record with Linode DNS and delegating all unknown hosts back to me [there system will not accept an '*' type of record].
I think I can get that up tomorrow.
DNS for dynside.net sub-domains has been enabled.
As of the 1st of January, 2007 I have put up the DynamicSide.NET Dynamic DNS (ddns) site.
Be warned, its very beta right now. You can see the site and do a couple of things, but for the most part it is not integrated with the backend.
This project turned out to be much more complex that I originally hoped for… A solid week and a half of work in what you are seeing, a good 4-8 hours a day. The layout was simple, but the rest is another story. I would say its 75% complete. I just have to go over a few things and put up the backend.
So its out in the wild primarily to get indexed and to let everyone see a bit of the future.
Developed and tested on the Web-Developer WAMP Server Suite. [That would be a nice type of banner/stamp to put up.]
There is another project that I think I will work on before I complete this one, but its much more simpler and once the site layout is done, it should not take more than a few days to do.
About one week ago I started work on DynamicSide.NET, a provider of dynamic DNS [ddns] Services. I have been meaning to create this project since about 2004… And 2-3 years later, its coming along very well and I should be able to deploy the site within the next 7 days.
This will be a separate entity from DeveloperSide.NET. I will have to write/update the ddns client that I have integrated into the WAMP Controller as we are a bit above the one *.dynside.net sub-domain mark. But primarily, this project will stand alone on its own.
I also have two other projects that I think I will work on when dynside.net is deployed and working… Both of which will not have much to do with WAMP in particular, but will serve a purpose.
