Re: Point my GoDaddy Domain to a dynamic ip address

Hi @harveyh. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! I don't have a direct answer for how you can do this, but I know it can't be done using GoDaddy nameservers/DNS management. There are DNS providers out there that let you setup Dynamic DNS (DDNS) though. You should be able to find one by searching online. Then, it would be a matter of pointing your domain's nameservers toward that provider

 

On another note, I would also suggest that you check with your internet connection provider to find out if they allow this kind of connection. They may block the ports that are used for browsers to connect to a webserver on some service plans. Hope that helps.
