    dyn.com and godaddy

    is godaddy.com premium DNS the same as dyn.com standard DNS? i want to know because id rather go through go daddy and pay a couple bucks than pay 30 and go through dyn.com.ive used godaddy for years.i live just a few miles from the godaddy center in scottsdale, az.so its more convenient for me...

    but want to know if they are the same.im setting up my home server with a domain name ill purchase soon.but im not sure also if i have a fixed external ip address or not or if there is a way to set up my server for world access.so maybe purchasing some kinda DNS type manager that will allow me to use my own domain name and my own server.id rather do.and not sure if godaddy's premium DNS is the same as dyn.com standard DNS.

    If you don't know, then you don't have a fixed IP address. In other words, every time you reboot your modem, you will have a different IP address. This web site:
    http://whatismyipaddress.com/
    might help your understanding.

    Many ISPs do not allow "residential" clients to run a web server. Check the Terms of Service for your ISP. My only relationship with Go Daddy is as a customer. If you sign up for multi-year web hosting, it's pretty cheap, especially with "30% off" renewal.

    a) Is godaddy.com the same as dyn.com standard dns
    nope. Dyn.com is more business/enterprise oriented, or websites that can't afford to have DNS outages. They have SLA if I remember correctly, There are others such as dnsmadeeasy, zoneedit, .etc .etc

    b) Use dns.he.net - they have dynamic DNS support

    also, +1 to the previous poster's reccomendation to check their ISP's TOS. Some actually block port 80, unless you have a business-class connection with them

    Okay then. We're relying on mirror dust and fairies but now we have a plan which is progress - Emma
