HOW TO – Give your Mac a hostname with DynDNS

Dyndns-1Nonstopmac writes “This article will show you how to easily setup a free DNS service that will give your Mac computer a static hostname. There are a lot of possibilities you can use this for, as most of the Internet connections offer dynamic IP addresses. Having a dedicated hostname can make it easier to remotely connect to your computer and run any kind of server.” Link.

    Although the article specifically mentions Mac, dynamic DNS is OS independant. The only thing you need to do is to make sure your dynamic DNS provider has your current IP. Some routers will provide the updates or the provider will provide a local client to keep you IP up to date.
