Introducing cu-ddns

Posted on

cu-ddns is a dynamic DNS client that uses VPS cloud providers such as Linode for DNS. This tool allows pointing a DNS hostname such as to an IP address that may change regularly. The typical scenario is having a domain name point to your home IP address however those that travel a lot would find it useful as well.

cu-ddns, which stands for “Cloud Unpacked Dynamic DNS” (more on that in the future), is a project I made over the weekend. It’s still very much a work-in-progress with only an unpolished v0.1.0 release so far. It’s written in Go, packed as a raw binary, deb and snap, currently supports Linux on amd64 or armhf, and is open source (MIT licensed).

You can learn more and contribute at its GitHub Repository.
