Add-In: Ten Atoms DNS Updater

DNS Updater is an add-in which enables you to remote access your Home Server website using a vanity URL instead of the default supplied http://xxxxx.homeserver.com sub domain.

The add-in by company "Ten Atoms" supports the following hosts:

  • DynDNS
  • NO-IP
  • ZoneEdit
  • DNS-O-Matic
  • Open DNS

The add-in is $19.99 and a 30 day trail is also available as well as additional information from here.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I cannot recommend this version ( as the Ten Atoms DNS Updater service continually crashed the WHS console and the add-in had to be uninstalled on my test system.

    Like Al mentioned, most routers support at least one or two of these DNS services. I use DynDNS on my Netgear router and have used it on two old Linksys routers.
    Also, DynDNS (and most likely some of the other free dynamic dns providers) offers a client which you could install on the Homeserver: http://www.dyndns.com/support/clients/. For free. I find $19.99 far too much for something that is available for… err… nothing… 🙂

    But actually, I do not see the sense in this add-in, unless you are for example a DynDNS customer who is at the same time hosting their domain at DynDNS – I mean, dynamic dns is already offered by WHS!

    Instead, I have purchased a domain (www. something .com) and modified it’s DNS to forward requests to my something.homeserver.com address. This is a one time purchase for the domain ($10) and it automagically gets me to my WHS…PLUS I have a *real* domain…isn’t this a better solution? (In addition, my host offers free e-mail, etc. etc.)

      Could you share what you did to modify your DNS so that you can use a standard domain name. I would like to use a .net domain that I have already registered instead of going through TZO. I have a static IP and really don’t need a DNS service.
