View Full Version : Subdomain and dyndns general help
03-13-2008, 06:16 PM
I've registered the subdomain, JOE.DYNDNS.ORG with DynDNS. Obviously I can access my BTV server using http://JOE.DYNDNS.ORG:8129. Are there any option in DynDNS that allows me to use http://BTV.JOE.DYNDNS.ORG instead?
if you have wildcards turned on for Joe, it probably would work, but you'd probably want to do an "url redirection".

I haven't done much with DNS, can you explain what wildcards are for?

Well you are trying to do two different things. Using BTV.JOE.DYDNS.ORG would probably require setting up a CNAME for it. The port 8129 removal requires that you redirect port 80 to 8129.
One is done with a DNS record (on DYDNS's server probably) and the other can be done with your router.
The url redirection can be done at the provider as well, No-IP does it, so does about every other major DNS provider that I know of. An URL redirection will redirect a normal cname to whatever URL (even with a port appended) you want.
