OK
do you mean you don;t want it yoor address to look like:

Code: Select all
http://zizrat.no-ip.org/index.php 

rather http://www.somezizratdomain.com ?


:shock:

Its a NO-IP issue - *as they provide your DNS *that was why I was referring to a Domain Name - in order to use a sub-domain or host name in a URL, you have to use the nameservers pointed to in the registrars record. and that would be the NO-IP nameservers as you don't have a static IP. (its the same iwtgh DynDNS(

"In January 2001 No-IP began offering paid managed DNS services which allowed users to set up dynamic DNS using their own domain name"

If you are on theior FREE paln - then you neeed this

Good Luck
