    Not a dotnet question yet, although the site will be dotnet.

    Anyway, I have a cable modem and dynamic (although pretty static) IP
    address. How can I use a domain name if the real ip can change? I see
    things like which seems to offer this service for free. Is
    this the recommended approach?

  2. Do a google search on dynamic IP or DNS providers..

    I used free for this. You can download software that sends new
    IP to DNS provider when it changes.

    NOTE: You need to find out if your ISP blocks port 80. In my case, I have
    to pay RCN $20 extra per month for static IP with open Port 80.

    Some providers keep Port 80 blocked with no other options available.

    Thanks, I'm looking at ZoneEdit. I use roadrunner and I'm sure they
    don't block 80 because I can get into my PC now by using the dynamic
    IP. I had to forward it through the Linksys though.

    ZE looks at lot more confusing than, which claims that you
    don't even need a domain name. I'm not sure how they do that.

    Well, more research is required. Thanks.
