a Dynamic DNS client for VPS cloud providers

Build Status Software License Follow @CloudUnpacked

This project is brand new and in alpha right now. You may notice a lack of polish and/or drastic changes.

cu-ddns is a dynamic DNS client that uses VPS cloud providers such as Linode for DNS. This tool allows pointing a DNS hostname such as to an IP address that may change regularly. The typical scenario is having a domain name point to your home IP address however those that travel a lot would find it useful as well.
