How do I configure DDClient?

The following is the format of the DDClient configuration:

use=web, web=dynamicdns.park-your-domain.com/getip
protocol=namecheap
server=dynamicdns.park-your-domain.com
login=yourdomain.com
password=your dynamic dns password
yourhost

Here is the example of its usage. If you would like to set up Dynamic DNS for yourdomain.com (without www), check its configuration:



If you need to dynamically update a subdomain, substitute the host only:

use=web, web=dynamicdns.park-your-domain.com/getip
protocol=namecheap
server=dynamicdns.park-your-domain.com
login=yourdomain.com
password=a9438540ba8a449fb0ed09c3737b9e32
www

Only login, password and yourhost parameters should be changed for a domain.

Should you need to configure the DDClient installed on Fedora OS, feel free to refer to this guide.
