Not quite sure what you're trying to do. Can you explain a bit more? The most important thing to note is that you can't host name servers (NS's) on a dynamic IP, even if you have a no-ip or dyndns address.

Not sure if I'm following you. So "mydynamic.domain" works OK. But then what? Are you adding another domain? And what exactly gives the "Server not found" error?

Hi all.

I am running a web server on my home network.

The external IP that is provided by my ISP is dynamic.

So I have a domain with another company that has dynamic updates using their API.

So I set ns1.mydynamic.domain to update to my home's dynamic IP every 5 mins.

This works if I go to mydynamic.domain

But I set a domain up and set it's NameServers to ns1.mydynamic.domain and ns2.mydynamic.domain but when I go to that domain I get "Server not found" ( RDCed onto my remote server to do that).

So IDK what is wrong.

Could anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Jack,
