Setting Up Dynamic DNS For Your Domain

you only have a DYN record for the wildcard *.mywebservice.it
You would need to add another where the host is the @ sign to denote the root domain of mywebservice.it

Already done, I deleted the record with @ for myservice.it days ago because it did not work! I try again and see what happens ...
Thank you

I modified zonedit ddns with @ mywebservice.it but it does not work.
I also modified the ddns command of Cisco to update the mysebservice.it domain
Before it was configured like this:
zoneedit method -
add http: // wwinter2: Authentication Token@dynamic.zoneedit.com/auth/dynamic.html?host= <h> & dnsto = <a>
Dialer -
ip ddns update hostname * .mywebservice.it
ip ddns update zoneedit
and only * .mywebservice.it worked, not i can ping domain...

changing the dialer to:
ip ddns update hostname mywebservice.it (without asterisk)
only the domain works but I can not ping the hosts

Hi

My domain wiensville.com is registered with easydns. I am trying to use your free dynamic dns to point this to my home router. I was using dynamic dns through dyndns for the last few years, but have now cancelled that service.


To my (confused) view, I have tried to set this up at zoneedit. On the dns information screen (zone panel: dynamic records) it reports that home.wiensville.com has an IP. I have confirmed that this IP is correct (so I assume that the client on my asus router is properly communicating with you). However, attempts to ping home.wiensville.com fail (although attempts to ping the IP address directly do work). I set this up over 48 hours ago so I don't think that propogation should be the issue. What have I missed?

Also, would things be easier if I transferred the domain registration to you (or does that not matter as you and easydns appear to be associated companies?)

I also tried to set up www. wiensville. com but it shows as offline.



thanks,
Ken

  1. Your domain (and hosts) are not visible right now. No idea about what are you seeing in your control panel.
  2. Assuming you followed the instructions on the first message (video) or help article, you should have no A records, and your DYN records (could be one, or more) would show the current IP (WAN) address; perhaps that is what you refer.
  3. ZoneEdit uses its own way to manage information, in your case, from your router. Its different that dyndns.
  4. Yes ZoneEdit and EasyDNS are the same for practical purposes.
For reference this is what I see trying to resolve your domain:

Which means the query goes to the wrong place: dynDNS, and their servers give no answer about your domain.

Hi Ken,


rberber is correct. Your domain is delegated to DYNDNS' nameservers still:

Domain Name: WIENSVILLE.COM
Registry Domain ID: 88164141_DOMAIN_COM-VRSN

Anything you set up in the Zoneedit zone for wiensville.com is not seen until you log into your EasyDNS account and change the Nameservers to dns1.zoneedit.com and dns2.zoneedit.com (and let them propagate)

Instructions can be found here:




To avoid confusion, it might be a good idea to transfer the registration from EasyDNS to Zoneedit. However, you will lose phone support and will need to rely on Email support (as you'll be a premium Zoneedit member). You won't need to use the forums as other Free users do.

If you need help with transferring, contact us via your EasyDNS account via our Easy-Does.It contact form.
The Easy-Does.it contact form can be found as a sub-menu selection under the "HELP" menu at the top blue bar of your control panel, OR just next to the Logout button at the top right corner.

Thank you to both of you for the assistance. This is what happens when you set up dynamic dns and then don;'t touch it for 8-10 years - you forget things like changing the name servers at the registrar.

Once again - all is working now, thank you for the advice!!
