Wiki needs update on DDns



  • The wikipage on Dynamic dns is not current with 2.2.4 release. For example city network is missing as provider in the Wiki, in 2.2.4 it works nicely (thank you - it's my ddns provider)

    I'm willing to update the page if I can get permissions to do so



  • https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Dynamic_DNS
    I updated the list in the "free" section to include the current providers. I sorted into alphabetical order, as I guess there is no preferred order there - it is not intended that the list be a recommendation.

    I left out "OVH DynHOST". That seems to be a paid service that is part of having content hosted by OVH - is that correct?

    The entries in the "free" section need to be reviewed to see if they are all still available free at some service level.

    In the case of City Network - is there any free dynamic DNS offered there? Or is it just for City Network customers who have other services already? Or is there a normal paid dynamic DNS service?

    Should there be a separate section of that doc to list dynamic DNS services that are supported in pfSense, but are not available as "just a dynamic DNS service"?
    i.e. those that are intrinsically bundled by some hosting provider - you would have to have a site/storage… hosted by that provider to make any use of their dynamic DNS bundled service.



  • CityNetwork offer it as a free service (at least they did when I registered it). The DDNS is the only service I got from them.



  • @Mats:

    Good - that means what I did to the doc page is reasonably correct.

    If people know of any services in the "Free" section that are no longer free, then please say so.



  • Google Domains could go in a separate section - free if your domain is registered with them.
