-another broken dead link FIXME 
  
-you probably thought, some helpful text would show up here, right? :?:+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.
  
-Well... this is all you've got.  m(+.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. 
  
-that being said, the link in the box simply returns your IP which you can use in an A-record for your domain. 
  
 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.. 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..

-really does not much, if anything at all.+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" is the typical nonsensical statement to waste screen space and sound like a badass.+"Load this URI to register your IP" - helpful if your address changes after every router reset.
