DDNS client for windows

I've come across a problem recently in that my Zywall 110 only has a max of 10 DDNS entries

Ive been slowly moving my domains over from to as they come up for renewal but Google domains uses Dynamic DNS (eg dyndns2 protocol).

You would think finding a windows update client would be easy right....?

Nope - they are all either scripts you can update dynamic dns urls from a bat file etc or are for unix/Linux installations or a lot of android versions ( assuming so you can browse to your phone via ip to do updates).

Ugh for some reason the exact solution I was looking for was hidden away after 1 hour of google searching / links etc  DynSite -

Supports a ton of providers located at

Supports a ton of routers for obtaining networked ip address - (not the Zywall 110....but it can obtain ip address with a websearch)

Took me a bit to work out the configuration (my dumb mistake....) see below, but this windows client does exactly what I need so hopefully with some SEO magic this link will help someone else out find DynSite - faster.

I take it my $GOOG shares aren’t going to benefit from Waymo anytime soon :(

Worth a watch.
