Test Release Go Report Card

Personal DDNS client with Digital Ocean Networking DNS as backend.

Read about it in the Blog


There are services like DynDNS, No-IP to access PCs remotely. But do we need them? This is your own DDNS solution which works for free (thanks to Digital Ocean Networking DNS).

What is DDNS

From Wikipedia

Dynamic DNS (DDNS) is a method of automatically updating a name server in the Domain Name System (DNS), often in real time, with the active DDNS configuration of its configured hostnames, addresses or other information.


Download binary from releases.

And start it as:


Or you can download Docker image and use it:

docker run \
  -v /path/to/config.yml:/config/ddns.yml \
  skibish/ddns -conf-file /config/ddns.yml


Run ddns -h, to see help. It will output:

Usage of ./ddns:
  -conf-file string
        Location of the configuration file. If not provided, searches current directory, then $HOME for ddns.yml file
        Show version

You need to setup your domain in Digital Ocean Networks panel.

In your domain name provider configuration point domain to Digital Ocean NS records.
