No-ip instead ipv4

Good morning,

is it possible instead of putting an ipv4 201.12.14.125 ip put a ddns service like no-ip?

Without knowing what your question really is about… I’ll say a careful YES.

What you’re asking is for a CNAME. You can create a CNAME record in Cloudflare to point a subdomain of your to any other domain (such as no-ip, or whatever).

today I have Type A with the Fixed IP that I have on my internet and the CNAME that has www.namesite.com.br. I didn’t understand how I could do what you suggested to replace the ip.

Hello,
Im slightly confused on whats being asked.

You can create a CNAME to the root/sub domain of your website with the value of your NoIP subdomain/url.
yourhost.no-ip[dot]org.

That means the ip of the no-ip subdomain will always match your websites.

The rest of the configuration is done on no-ip. Either installing one of their clients or configuring it through their web interface.

Example:

example[dot]com → CNAME (mycoolhost.no-ip[dot]org)

Mycoolhost.no-ip.org could be automatically changed by their client on the server what finds its own public ip and sends it to no-ip to update their record. What in returns “changes” yours.

This may of not made much sense, but hopefully it explains it a bit better?


But as you said, you have a fixed ip any way. Im not sure if no-ip proxys (hides your ip).
If you are looking to do that, Cloudflare does that for you with the yellow cloud symbol next to the record.

Thank you,
Mitchell
