tinydyndns is a simple but powerful dynamic DNS solution that uses
djbdns. It cooperates with the djbdns package to publish dynamic IP

tinydns' constant database "data.cdb" directly without rebuilding it;
this makes the dynamic DNS solution use very few system resources.
Using a POP service for authentication saves the work for installing
special client software, since POP clients are available for every
common network-aware operating system. To provide the DNS and POP
services, tinydyndns cooperates with djbdns, mailfront, and cvm.
The POP service can easily be replaced with other services that provide
authentication, such as APOP, IMAPS, ...
