    Hi is possible update the DNS of an account without using WHM? For example I have a subdomain pippo.mydomain.com I need to update it every day because this one point to my xDSL dynamic IP, is it possible?

    Any answer on this. I have the same interest in doing this for an offisite backup. I do not wish to pay for a static IP from my ISP, and I find it silly to pay for a dynamic DNS service when I already run a full DNS server with WHM. I have figured out that I would create a seperate zone for xxx.domain.com and then just rewrite the A record in it via cron or some method I already have figured out. How can I edit the zone record and then I assume refresh DNS?

    There is a problem I see in doing this:

    Your nameserver won't have a static IP. Dynamic DNS services have static IP nameservers; only your A records change. It would be problematic (IMO) to try and run a primary nameserver on a dynamic IP.

    Again, my opinion.
