Hi, I want to use your DDNS service. I have already a domain, from another registrar, can I use it to connect to the DDNS service?

Yes, you can use your own domain name for DDNS updates.

1. Sign up for the domain name using Option 2 at DDNS signup page.

2. Go to your current registrar and change the name servers for the domain name to Dynu's. (ns1.dynu.com-ns6.dynu.com).

As a follow up,
Can a sub domain be used in this was as well, allowing dynu to assign ddns uses for that zone while we manage the rest? For example, if all the DDNS users lived in 'd' as in 'user.d.ourdoamin.com' it would be simpler for use to maintain some existing allocations. Or, do you need to entire domain assigned over to your name servers. Am trying to plan adding support for DDNS user but we have existing static IP users we need to avoid assignment conflicts with. Any advice?

You can use their free third level domains to map to the dynamic IP and create CNAME records in your zone for user.d.ourdomain to point to those third level domains.

I just tested this and it works great.

You just need to create few NS records for d.ourdomain.com

the exact way to this would depend on your DNS host, but if you create 2 NS records, 1 with ns1.dynu.com and another with ns2.dynu.com


You will then be able to create host1.d.ourdomain.com dynmic hosts on dyny, and they will work.
