OR, you could simply put this entry in your crontab, and it will update every 4th hour:
0 */4 * * * /usr/bin/curl --silent 'https://freedns.afraid.org/dynamic/update.php?YKIJUSiikf83kfj8dhfhuee9jdjd9ejfj99fj9jslRRRT' > /dev/null 2>&1

I hadn't tried re-enabling. But, I assumed it was fairly simple.
