How to setup DDNS update with Synology

I have a synology nas, that allows you to setup DDNS.

GoDaddy is not one of the listed ones, but Synology allows you to add a custom one to update the DDNS information.

It is asking for Service Provider: and "Query URL:"

As an example they have:

Service provider: provider_XYZ

Query URL: http://ddns.provider.org/update?hostname=_HOSTNAME_&myip=_MYIP_

 

I was wondering where I could find the "Query URL" for GoDaddy?

 

Thanks

Hi @thundergusto, thanks for posting.

GoDaddy don't offer an API for DNS changes or management. It doesn't look like that particular service would be compatible with GoDaddy.

So what you're saying is that GoDaddy only works with static IP addresses?

There is a way now

Follow the instructions to get and API key and secret (have to do it twice to move off of TEST).

Then copy the script at the bottom to a text editor. Change the appropriate stuff in the script -- key and secret and domain name. Then copy the script to your clipboard -- go into Synology administration open up the Task Scheduler - Create User Defined script -- Name the task -- then past the script into the Run command window -- then schedule how often you want it to run.

I've been trying this but all of the scripts i've found have commands that the syno' doesn't seem to recognize. 

tried a powershell script from the referenced link, also found a bash script. 

anyone had any luck getting a script to work?

For anyone who is still looking for a way to use Synology NAS with your GoDaddy domain, you may use a third party dynamic DNS service for which you need to list the provider's name servers for your GoDaddy domain name.  I used dynu.com dynamic DNS service which allows me to use their free service and keep the domain name registered with GoDaddy in the meantime.
