Most users on the internet have dynamic IP addresses and hostnames. This
means that for most people, their hostname keeps changing, so if you want
to offer web pages, ftp, or anything from your computer, or even host a
simple game of Quake or QuakeII, you have to contact people first, letting
them know what your host is.
With the Dynamic Hostname service, you can easily and quickly have your
chosen hostname mapped to your IP when you log in. For example, you could
have John.l8r.net mapped to your ip, if you so desire (and it hasn't
been taken ;). This mapping takes about one minute to happen, after you
run the client. Also, if you desire another hostname, like John.net, we
can do that for you as well. Basically, we can map any hostname that you
want to your ip when you log in!
This service is just leaving beta testing now, and there will be a 2 week
trial period for all those who want to test this service before paying for
it. At the end of the 2 weeks, the host will be killed if payment hasn't
been received. This service will cost you $25 CDN / year. This is
nothing, compared to the $100 most providers charge, and even worse,
some providers force you to get a dedicated line to have a static
hostname, costing $1000's/year! All in all, $25 is not a bad price to
pay, for constant, reliable service.
