[How-To] Install DuckDNS. Automatic dynamic IP update.

    • Official Post

    DuckDNS installation on docker. This will allow the automatic update of your IP.

    DuckDNS is a free service which will point a DNS (sub domains of duckdns.org) to an IP of your choice. The service is completely free, and doesn't require reactivation or forum posts to maintain its existence.

    The architectures supported by this image are: x86-64, arm64, and armhf.

    Through this installation you will have a subdomain pointing to your server that renews the IP every 5 minutes. You can use this subdomain in any other docker or service that you install on your server.

    Update: You can do this via a simple command in the OMV GUI scheduled tasks without the need for a container. Here you have the procedure. https://wiki.omv-extras.org/do…th_duckdns_fix_dynamic_ip
