Keep friend in touch with dynamic ip
Hey guys!
Here is the problem. I am hosting a minecraft server but I am using dynamic IP. Unfortunatly, Hydro Quebec are doing some modification in my area so they keep cutting the wire for my internet, resulting in a new IP every like 5 hour which is pretty annoying. Is there a way to share my IP with the other people that are playing on the server so if I am not at home they can have the new IP and connect to the server?

Thx a lot!

Your beloved martin :P

ive been using FreeDNS - Free DNS - Dynamic DNS - Static DNS subdomain and domain hosting and im loving it for my few servers, i prefer ***.org.org seems easiest to remember for my friends rather than .dyndns.org etc

Check if your router supports a dynamic DNS service, too. Then your router can update the address as often as needed.

One caveat; older Dlink routers will not work with DynDNS anymore.
