well its new.
- It supports ddclient
- It supports inadyn
- It has a resolver service

So try it.
I tried it and it works! I use it for my openindiana homebox. The steps to use it are quit simple.
- Create an new account at https://dynni.com
- Get ddclient (maybe from http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/ddclient)
- Setup the config
ssl=no protocol=dyndns2 use=web, if=whatismyip.org server=update.dynni.com login= password=''
and adjust login and password
- Start ddclient
./ddclient -file config_file
- Add a cronjob , here is mine<
20,40 * * * * /home/jstephan/ddclient-3.7.3/ddclient -file ddclient.conf
- Send emails to the owner of dynni and tell them that you read about dynni in my blog:-)
