I just got a Firtz!Box Fon as my new him router. Now it was quite challenging to find a proper dyndns host.
In the early days I used dyndns.org but the services have changed and I feel quite limited with only one free host and paying for more. Further I am not a friend to give my data away to everybody. Therefore I recoiled my unused domain named with namecheap.com.
They offer a limited dyndns service for each domain you have. You get one password per domain configured for dynamic DNS update.
Just go to: “Miscellaneous” –> “Dynamic DNS” –> enable
Now you have a password for the update.
But be careful all hosts are updatable with this code !
You password should look like this: madubi29pitulu33mawewo88wafoni14
Now you need to add a subdomain for your registered domain e.g.: fritz with the IP 127.0.0.1
Now you have everything you need to get the FritzBox updating Namecheap den DNS clients:
- URL to update: dynamicdns.park-your-domain.com/update?host=<username>&domain=<domain>&password=<pass>&ip=<ipaddr>
- username = fritz (the subdomain)
- domain= myhome.xyz (your registered domain at namecheap)
- password = madubi29pitulu33mawewo88wafoni14
Add these information on your user defined DynDNS Configuration field and see the IP change from 127.0.0.1 to your home IP.
