Is what you're discussing some variation of what I'm doing with
dyn.com <http://dyn.com> and a free Debian IP updater client? Or
Sounds like the same thing. I've not needed it before but knew
Lewis now is a reseller for godaddy and if I am going to buy a
service, I figured to check that route first. I want my router to
do it as it will handle it at each IP change.
Al: Yes, exactly.
Like Max, I also used your link to SSL Labs, and found I was overdue
to remove TLSv1.0 & 1.1: done. Since I use LE, that required
commenting/pasting in two files instead of one. TG for the internet,
I didn't have to search long to find that fix.
Also my memory of what I've been paying dyn for DDNS was off by nine
years: I last paid $15/yr. in 2011; today, it's almost $50/yr.
Also, Dyn's standard DNS service doesn't even support CAA records,
and these are now (since 2017 or so) considered *required* for any
domain to pass muster. GoDaddy actually *does* support CAA records
and it's entirely free if your domain is registered either through
I have "Pro" (I think I had too many domains to use Std. anymore), but
I just spent a fruitless ten minutes trying to determine the
differences between Std. & Pro, and from what I can see, there is no
Std. pkg. these days: it's all Pro, and at the rate I'm currently paying.
SSL Labs confirms no CAA for my domains. Well, I guess my sites don't
pass muster in 2019, but I can't say I'm terribly stressed about it.
These days, I barely pay any attention to them, unless someone emails
with a complaint, which is darned rare. If a CA issues my cert to
someone else, I guess I'll deal with the situation then.
Full disclaimer: GoDaddy's DNS *has* had issues in the past and is
nowhere near the robust implementation of Dyn. That said, again, it's
free, and sometimes, free is pretty good.
Yeah, at $50/year, maybe I'd be tempted to spend a couple of hours
moving to a robust, free solution, but I won't, because it's not
broken enough to motivate me these days.
