I search a lot of and the way are soo dificult, and I don't know way.

Yo can configure it in a simple way.

#Install ddclient to manager dyndns.
yum install ddclient

#Add the configuration to the config file. You have to edit the file (Be carefull!!!!, only edit this).
#For security we back up the original file

cp /etc/ddclient.conf /etc/ddclient.conf.back
nano /etc/ddclient.conf


#Search the sentence below and change it.
#use=if, if=eth0

Del de "#" to activate it, next change the if interface if you need, In my case I havea ppp0 conection (or ppp1 if you have multiple ppp conections).
use=if, if=ppp0

#Next Search the login options and del the "#" to activate it, put the correct dyndns user and password
login = your_dyndns_user # default login
password = your_dyndns_pass # default password


#now we configure dyndns and the hostname, del the "#" to activate it.
#In the first 2 lines only del the "#".
#The 3th line is your dyndns hostname
server=members.dyndns.org, \
protocol=dyndns2 \
your_hotname.dyndns.org


#To exit only have to pres Ctrl+x, and then press Y to write the changes.

#Start the service and test it.
service ddclient start

#You can see the service status with
service ddclient status

#The last step is add ddclient to auto start (When you turn on the PC).
systemctl enable ddclient.service

#To see if all is working, only do this
ping your_hotname.dyndns.org
#If you se that the ip is the same that your ppp ip, all is fine.

Enjoy it!!

    No that's too hard and too many config files to tweak. Makes my brain ache.

    You know that ClearOS has it's own DynamicDNS.

    Whatever your server name is then the address is myservername.poweredbyclear.com

    The Market Place App is Dynamic DNS and it's free.

    If you want your own address simply do an ALIAS record in your Domain hosting service.

    server.myname.co.uk ALIAS myservername.poweredbyclear.com

    Then when ever you use server.myname.co.uk it goes to your server. It even works for email.
