I have spent the last few weeks organizing a change for my domain registrar (websitespot.com) so I can have full control over the name servers for the domain. I have done this because I was previously unable to host websites due to the dynamic nature of my IP address.

No problems anymore. I have purchased custom dns services from dyndns.org and by using their name servers, I can update the IP address for the domain name when needed using their client.

Total cost for one year (not including my own internet, server costs) around $32. Thats the .com domain for about $6.95 and the custom DNS for about $25 (US$)

Next up (after saving enough) I’m planning on getting a couple UPS’s to make sure that turning on the microwave and jug at the same time doesn’t kill the power to the servers – and the rest of my house.
