Need help with setting an external DDNS for my MX64

Hi,

 

I recently purchased a NAS for my home use and I would like to have my NAS found with a domain name.  However, I do not have a static IP address, therefore I'm looking at using the services from NO-IP.  

 

And the problem begins, my MX64 is xxxxx-gcjdzzbgjh.dynamic-m.com.  

 

I would like to have my MX64 display my domain.  How should I go about doing it?

 

Anyone help?

 

Thanks

Felix

Kind of a big deal

You could use a CNAME from your domain to the DDNS entry.

As pointed by @PhilipDAth, you can use a CNAME to point an existing subdomain or domain to your Meraki FQDN.

 

However this implies another DNS query for each time you access it. If you want, I have build a PHP script used to ping the Meraki address, get the IP and set it on a Cloudflare DNS. This way, I have my own DDNS service.

 

If you are interested in that script, let me know.
