  • Published my first python package.
    Of course I was looking into existing solutions before making it and I did come across ddclient. However it was using deprecated Cloudflare API in the version I managed to install on my raspberry so I figured I'll just do it myself with python.

  • Browsers see my websites as the same as they all go over the same A Record, any solutions?
    I use https://ddclient.net/ to do exactly what you're doing, but it can easily be configured to set all the subdomains on Cloudflare. Not sure how it does with wildcards on other DNS hosts.

    reddit.com/r/AmpliFi | 2021-03-25
    I use an Amplifi HD with port forwarding and it works well. It doesn’t support any DDNS providers but i just run ddclient in a Docker container on a raspberry pi and it handles ddns updates for me.

  • Bought a domain to host myself, and rather confused about DNS. Am I right that I should edit / add to the records (on the control panel on the registrars site) a record 'www' (or similar) of my own computer's ip address? Am I misunderstaning?

    The option you see in your ISP Account is unneccesary and only targets businesses, so don't worry. What you'll need is a Dynamic DNS Service like NoIP (btw this is free you just need to confirm an email every 30 days). This is because without paying the 30€ your ip address will change randomly which is called dynamic public ip. Of course that's pretty unfortunate when you enter this address on your phone and 2 weeks later nothing works anymore because your ip changed. the dynamic DNS (=DomainNameServie) service will map a normal name like e.g. "youtube.com" to your ip address, which never changes. But the ip you are pointing it to will be updates as soon as it changes. Check if your Router has support for DDNS/Dynamic DNS, if so you will have less work to do. Otherwise you'd have to setup yet another service on your pi (most likely you'll want something small in size like https://github.com/ddclient/ddclient). This than actually updates the ip your DynDNS service points to, again just if your router doesn't support this feature.
