Use a domain with dial-up connection

If you wont your computer to act a web server, you must register a domain and do some little configuration. I have a dynamic ip, changed every time I connect to the net.

These are the steps needed to make it works:

1. Create a dynamic DNS service

  1. Create an account on a dynamic DNS site like http://www.no-ip.com
  2. Choose the name of your server, for example mauro.no-ip.info
  3. Download the Client, it’s available for OsX, Windows and Linux.
  4. Install it and configure with your account.
  5. Launch it.

2. Configure the Web domain

  1. Register a internet domain, if you don’t have it.
  2. Create an entry in the domain DNS management:
    http://www.yourdomain.ext CNAME dynamic.ip.address.
    for example: http://www.mauro.com CNAME mauro.no-ip.info
  3. Set the TTL field to 300 to minimize DNS propagation time

Starting from now, if the DNS client is on, your computer will be reachable.
