Eponym Update

I recently added a couple of cool features to Eponym.  In addition to supporting DynDNS.org hostnames, it now supports your own domain names through ZoneEdit.com’s dynamic DNS service.  So now you can use Eponym to help run yourdomain.com on your home computer, instead of having to use yoursubdomain.dyndns.org (though that is still supported too).

Secondly, it will now send you an email whenever your IP address changes, and whenever there’s a problem updating your hostname(s).

If you’re running any kind of server on your home system and you’d like a static hostname (whether you.dyndns.org or yourowndomain.com) to go with it, check out Eponym.

This is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for. Most other ZoneEdit update software are very bloated with unnecessary GUIs and seldom used features. Does Eponym force update on ZoneEdit so accounts won’t go bad? Thanks

Thanks, I’m glad you like it.  It actually doesn’t force-update ZoneEdit accounts because to my knowledge, those accounts don’t automatically "expire" as DynDNS.org accounts do.  Have you seen documentation on the ZoneEdit website saying that they do auto-expire?
