Better yet, the service at the URL is free, [clipped from the site]
Just get your cable installed? Itching to have a personal site on your DSL? Want to control your own e-mail? Don't want to have to tell friends about that annoying changing IP address or ISP-assigned hostname? We've got the answers for you! Our Dynamic DNS and Static DNS services give you a new name -, for example, or you can choose from several other domains. Sign up, pick a hostname, download one of our selection of third-party update clients, and you're on your way! Best of all, these services are totally free for up to 5 hostnames each. Up to 20 hostnames in each service are available to donators.
Just go to and register; then download a free client (I use DNSUpdate by Julien Jalon) that maintains 'track' of your URL. Both the service and the client take donations (but not obligatory; but you'll want to give something when you see how slick it is ...)

Well, so it is. However, there may still be uses for this idea.
Perhaps an automatic iDisk backup, or a simple web-mirroring solution?
I also like that I don't have to worry about "DNS trickle time" if I
set crontab to update every 10 minutes or so. In any case, thanks for
the tip.
