Currently sub to dyndns, they're getting really expensive for what it is. Signed up in 2012, started off at $20 per year, then $54 every 2 years and now they want $72 for 2 years. It's outta hand!

Looking for alternatives, anyone have a service they recommend that is free or inexpensive? Need to have at least 6 host names.

I use the free service at dns.he.net

You have to have your own domain, and a platform which supports updating it such as wget in a scheduled task.

noip.com is $24.95/year ($20 or so if you catch it on sale). Most of the free services are springboards to pay services when you want more than a couple hosts. noip's free service recently jumped to three hosts with independent confirmations of each host monthly. It can be pretty annoying but nothing is truly free. noip is also supported by many consumer routers though perhaps not as prevalent as DynDNS.

Noip enhanced service may be the way to go. They're offering 25 host names with the enhanced. Currently have 10, could get by with 6. Definitely a better deal than dyndns. Appreciate the info.
