The one that I purchased is by RhinoSoft, DNS4me


It has been running for over a year now with no problems.

For those that do not know the client program does, a trace back to the 
server and registers the IP on the exterior of your network (DHCP address 
on my router). Their service then host DNS for the "chosen name/IP." In my 
case my IIS box is one Nat'd IP and my FTP server is on another Nat'd IP.

Should I desire I could register a domain name and allow them to host the 
first DNS server. So with the correct Dynamic DNS service you could host 
your own domain as mentioned above.
