Re: Dynamic IP...so what?
Yes, it is likely that the whole static/dynamic address thing will affect you, if your modem is diconnected for any reason, (including possible automatic firmware updating).
You can register domains (or even transfer domains) with dynamic DNS providers, but these tend to cost more.
using No-ip needn't be complicated. and you can use your existing domain name
you simply register with your email address, make a domain, and turn on wild cards.
install a dns server on your webserver, and point the DNS records for your domain you purchased to your no-ip address,
so the name servers are ns1.godfather.no-ip.com and ns2.godfather.no-ip.com
then you set your DNS server (which comes with windows 2000).
enter your domain name as the root, then add alias records for your domain and subdomains to point at your no-ip address,
that way you can register as many subdomains as you like (because you are the root authority for your DNS), your full domain name (that you paid for) is effectivly dynamic and it's dynamic for free, (rather that 10 times the cost of a normal domain that it costs to get dynamic dns on a proper domain name).
