Starting now, if you would like to maintain your free Dyn account, you must log into your account once a month. Failure to do so will result in expiration and loss of your hostname. This activity helps us eliminate hostnames that are no longer needed and/or dormant. Note that using an update client will no longer suffice for this monthly login.
I hope you are correct but my limited research shows otherwise. There are no more free hostnames period. If you are grandfathered in then you have to login once a month. Previously, you had to update the hostname atleast once a month for it to stay active with a dyndns client (which was understandable). I also liked TZO for free dns but seems dyn.com already assimilated that company[:@]
I have never used dyndns in business settings so I am not concerned about that aspect. I have 5 hostnames and a couple of static IPs [:$] Back in the heyday of dotcom, it was much easier to assign an IP to a hostname instead of remembering each IP. But I can foresee problems for many users who use netgear and other routers (astaro) that have dyndns client built in and finding themselves without service since dyn.com is under no obligation to deliver their change of policy email to anyone.
I have not received this email personally but logged in just to make sure and everything works. I did find a copy posted on yahoo groups if anyone is interested. Yahoo! Groups
Yes, the UTM supports dyndns and a few other services... it's in webadmin.
But, according to this news, you'll still need to login to their website monthly.
I realize utm supports dyndns, but is there a way to get utm to update the ip address? The client is responsible to periodically do this.

Starting now, if you would like to maintain your free Dyn account, you must log into your account once a month. Failure to do so will result in expiration and loss of your hostname. Note that using an update client will no longer suffice for this monthly login. You will still continue to get email alerts every 30 days if your email address is current.
Astaro/UTM has, for quite some time (at least since 8.x) had ddclient built-in; it is exposed in WebAdmin under Network Services on one of the Tabs on the right (in v9, don't click on DNS under Network Services).
There is a dropdown to choose from quite a few providers.
The most recent update was April 27th, which I believe is the date that that I reinstalled utm from scratch after a failed update of a beta. Since then, utm has not updated dyndns.

KSeeman, when did you get your DynDNS.org?
