It has always been a dream of mine to host a website from my own computer for educational purposes. To learn how to run a server and about basic web design.
I registered a domain name through networksolutions.com and installed the apache web server via the synaptic package manager. I then told network solutions to send traffic to my domain to my ip address.
It worked initially and I found out that my test attempts at going to my site took me to /vars/www/index.html, which is simply a basic html file with the message "it works"
Here's where I need help, I'm hosting my site off of a basic cable connection and my ip address will occasionally change. I've read about dynamic dns and been referred to dyndns.com and ddclient. While reading through the documentation on that site and for that program I got lost.
This is my first attempt at this and I would really appreciate anyone's help who could walk me through the process of setting up dynamic dns or give me some tips to send me in the right direction.
