-another broken dead link+ 
 +The link in the box on http://be.libre (domain management) returns your current IP which is then set as the A-record for your *.dyn domain. 
 + 
 +.dyn does not support  RFC-2136   but instead uses some URL-scheme: a single bash line will update the address: 
 + 
 +  python3 -c 'import urllib.request ; err=urllib.request.urlopen("http://api.opennicproject.org/ddns/web.dyn?user=XXX&auth=YYY").read().decode("utf8")' 
 +  
 +with XXX replaced with user  YYY with the real secret 
 + 
 + 
 + 
 +Other features which RFC-2136 offers are impossible on a *.dyn domain. 
 + 
 + 
 + 
 +.dyn is controlled by the nameserver  **161.97.219.84**  called  **ns2.opennic.glue**  
 + 
 + 
 +So if you run a webserver like Apache on your local machine, the .dyn domain should be served without much fuss. 
 + 
 +Update your IP with copy + paste of the API link. This works essentially like a regular dynamic-address DNS-tool. 
 +So save the link as a bookmark for manual surfing - or better - call the URL via **curl** automatically upon address change or using some other automated scheme.  
 + 
 + 
 +The A-record returns a 32-bit IPv4 address, most commonly used to map hostnames to an IP address of the host, but it is also used for DNSBLs, storing subnet masks in RFC 1101, etc.. 
 + 
 +http://api.opennicproject.org/ddns/web.dyn?user=SOMEuser&auth=kjngrkj 
 + 
 +This is an API call available for the  *.dyn  Toplevel-domains such as    http://web.dyn 
 +reload the domain administration page at  http://be.libre   to see the fresh entry. The A-record gets updated upon hitting button "**UPDATE**" .      
 + 
 +"Load this URI to register your IP" - helpful if your address changes after every router reset.
