    I am looking over these two service providers below. This is to get the
    website working from my server, instead of from another Webhosting provider.
    I am looking at cost and services.



    I need an objective review that might catch what I am missing.



    http://www.dyndns.org/





    http://stormreaverkeep.linksysnet.com/MainPageServices/index.html



    TZO is what we have right now and it is not working the way I want it to.
    It may be setup, but I am not really sure. I am also thinking that we have
    been paying more than we should be for the TZO level of service.



    The only reason we went with TZO to begin with was that the info came with
    our router.



    Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks

  2. Very good, I use their secondary DNS services and they are all solid,
    and the router I have supports all their services, including Custom
    DNS, where you use your own domain. The update protocol is also well
    known, and thus is supported by a lot of equipment/software. In the
    occasion where I needed to know a bind configuration that they were
    using, the support was very prompt, to the point and accurate.

    I also use their MX backer which is a no fuss server for use with
    secondary MX.

  3. I've been using dyndns.org for years. For dynamic DNS, backup MX, DNS
    hosting, etc.
    They're great & have never caused me a problem. I do recommend you sign up
    for paid dynamic DNS (it's like $20/yr) so you don't get your hosts
    accidentally deleted if your server fails to update them within X days. It's
    worth it.

    Haven't used anyone else but I know people who like www.no-ip.com . For me,
    dyndns is it.
