@codesections I use/have used both. Both work great. I'm not sure about privacy.

What do you mean by "both"? I only mentioned one
@codesections 😃lol, I guess I imagined my initial response instead of posting it. I meant to mention freedns.afraid.org
@codesections what about setting up your own dynamic dns?
> what about setting up your own dynamic dns?
What do you have in mind? Unless I'm missing something, I'd still have to `dig` an external service, wouldn't I? That doesn't seem too different from using an existing provider (but I feel like I might be missing something there)
@codesections I mean using BIND9 as a caching DNS server. You'd be connecting to the Root NSs directly rather than going through something like Google or CloudFlare
There's a learning curve involved but I think it's worth learning about the DNS system in the end
@brandon thanks, I'll put that on m to-learn list :D
@codesections my pleasure!
It's funny, there's a few things from the Cisco courses that I learned that I think like...any tech or developer would do well to learn.
DNS, IPv4 + VLSM, and routing+switching basics are those things. It helps you understand a lot of higher level concepts like web servers, network troubleshooting, and network addressing.
@codesections dns.he.net (forgot the link)
@codesections also, feel free to ask me anything about these things if you're stuck
I'd like to hear thoughts on duckdns as well.
