Virtual Static IP Address

By wh3 ·
I have Verizon DSL and would like to host an e-mail server. Now, Verizon DSL only provides dynamic ip address. I heard of a website, www.dynip.com, that helps on you on setting up virtual static ip address for you DSL service. They charge about $36/year for this and you get a domain name (yourpc.dynip.com). Does anybody know anything about this, or another way around this? Let me know.

tks!

This is what I use to run my FTP server.

I have a dynamic IP also, but this helps to make sure that your clients can still hit your computer.

There is also software that is written by individuals on the site that will record EVERY change to your IP address and then forward the information to your account @ dyndns.org, change the settings all automatically.

I have been using this service for a little over two years now and it has always run flawlessly. There was only ONE time that it didn't work, and that was when there was a HUGE storm where their servers were stored. The building was hit with electricity which cooked a couple of computers and there was also a flood that finished off a couple of the other ones left from the lightning... It was a pretty big mess.

But they were back up and running again after a couple of days. It was actually quite impressive...:)

Anywho, I hope that this helps out.

Oh yeah, one other thing. It's based on donations only. There isno set fee, but donations are appreciated.
