    "FreeDNS has been around for a while and it shows, but that's not a bad thing as FreeDNS still has that old function over form feel that makes it extremely useful if you know what you are doing. Sure there is a bit of a learning curve but it's really nothing harder than rolling your own DD-WRT setup which honestly if you have a use for a dynamic DNS services, you probably have already done."

    "When I landed my new work at home job, I was not as prepared as I had thought. They wanted a VPN set up on my network to access their systems and talk to customers. I barely knew what a VPN was, but the guys at DNSdynamic walked me through what I needed to know to secure my network, and my new job."

    "I just love this Duck DNS service! I've always had issues connecting to my home computers when travelling or even at work sometimes. It can be hard with dynamic external ip addresses to connect as they change constantly. Well, Duck DNS solved that for me with their dynamic dns service and the best part was it's free! Simple, efficient and free, what could be better?!"

    "Now-DNS is a great service offering free Dynamic DNS for both IPv4 and IPv6. The management interface is really nice and simple. There are free updater clients for those running Windows or a dead easy API. I normally just cron up a curl job to hit the API once a minute and jobs a good un."
