Using a service such as no-ip links your domain to an IP address. For that to happen a client is installed on the web server using the
no-ip username/password details.
www.example.com may point to
188.8.131.52. However, obviously being dynamic,
www.example.com may suddenly change to
The problem I have is with my domain registrar (Namecheap), when I register private name servers I have to link a domain to a fixed IP address. As it's dynamic, I can't assume
www.example.com is always going to point to
How do I get around this problem, without having a static IP provided by my ISP, as that means a business account and with that comes additional costs?
EDIT: I may have used private wrongly. I currently host my own webserver on a VPS, which has a static IP. However, I'd like to host my own webserver from home but my ISP doesn't provide a static IP unless I switch a business account (at an extra cost, of course). I host many other people's (only friends, so downtime here and there isn't a massive issue) websites, so I have my own nameservers - so it's easy for people to point their websites at my server. It's when using those nameservers I need to associate the nameserver with a fixed IP, hence the issue I'm having.
