    Duck DNS vs No-IP opinions
    Almost everyone thinks Duck DNS is a great alternative to No-IP.

    Bailed on No-Ip.com as it's too big a pain -- major Captcha puzzle x2 each month. (Used to do no-ip paid, but price is now $25 instead of $14.) DuckDNS seems to do the job fine and it's no-nag free (for now).

    No monthly check-in. Provides multiple DNS records even for free third level domains. SRV record is especially useful for me.

    Very convenient and stable service. Have used it for many years now. I like the fact that I don't have to check in or do anything to keep the free service going.

  5. Dyn

    • Mac
    • Windows
    • Linux
    • Online

    Using Dyn’s dynamic DNS eliminates the headache and human error associated with tracking ever-changing IP addresses and allows you to avoid the alternative of purchasing pricey static IPs.

    Discontinued

    This service was discontinued and replaced by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in May of 2020.

    This alternative is disputed. Dyn is still a legitimate alternative to No-IP, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
