This post will address how to properly configure the dynamic DNS client ddclient when being used with NameCheap.
I often face issues dealing with dynamically assigned IP addresses. A dynamic IP address is one that can change periodically. How often depends on a lot on the particular circumstances, my home IP changes only two or three times a year, but one of my clients IP addresses seems to be changing almost daily. If you find yourself in a situation similar to my client where you need to connect to a network over the internet, but that network’s external IP address is constantly changing, a dynamic DNS (DDNS) service is a good solution.
