Dynamic DNS

     Now this is an article for you new and upcoming super-geeks out there.  If you are interested in hosting your own website, but don't quite have the income for hosting or a static ISP, there is a third option.  You can set up a website running DynamicDNS, or DynDNS, which is a third party system that will allow you to run your website off of your own server, but without the need for a static IP.
     If you are one of those people that has shelled out the extra cash and paid for a router other than the one you're internet provider is renting to you, this is usually an easy process.  Most home routers these days come with the built in ability to use DynDNS.
