You can find several DDNS service providers with a simple Google search.
 


In - this - image, you can see the specification of a network that will be given the domain name - "JohnsoNet.homedns.org", which is administered by DynDns.org. This specification will lead to the external interface of a NAT router that is currently assigned IP address 204.242.227.229. All servers or services behind this NAT router can hereafter be addressed with Domain names like this (all of which address the external interface of the same NAT router):


www.JohnsoNet.homedns.org

Teamspeak.JohnsoNet.homedns.org

printserver.JohnsoNet.homedns.org

Linux1.JohnsoNet.homedns.org

MailServer.JohnsoNet.homedns.org

TweetyPie.JohnsoNet.homedns.org


(Your NAT router can use - "Port Forwarding", as described in other AskMisterWizard.com movies - to direct each of these Domain Name Addresses to a different server host on your Local Network).
