I am very new to servers and IT in general. I have setup a UCS Server (5.0) on an old computer at home for testing. The installation was successful, I have access to it locally and I have opened the ports 80 and 443 of my router to point to the fixed IP address of my computer (192.168.0.52).
I am the owner of a domain example[dot]net which I purchased through namecheap[dot]com. I created a subdomain server[dot]example[dot]net which I would like to point to my home UCS server (the main domain points to my personal website which is hosted at a regular hosting provider).
For this purpose I understand that I need a Dynamic DNS client. Reading the documentation of namecheap[dot]com, I understand I can use a DNS client as explained here and here. I have already “Created an A+Dynamic DNS” for the hostname; but I am unsure how to setup this DNS client. Should i install it on my UCS server computer? Which one should I go for in your opinion, zoneclient or ddclient ?
Is anyone familiar with this kind of setup? How did you do for your server? I am open for other suggestions as well. (please use a beginner friendly language :)))
Thanks in advance,
