4MY.EU for dynamic IPs

Assigning 4MY.EU subdomain for computers with dynamic IP is possible!
Did you check my other post stating that I will be giving out subdomains at 4MY.EU for limited time? If not read it first! Your webserver on Your local computer or remote VPS could have address like money.4my.eu!

Anyway what I wanted to write about is that You can put apache web server (or any other software) on Your local computer and have subdomain at 4MY.EU even when You have dynamic IP that changes every time You reconnect to internet. This can be ahieved by using some dynamic DNS tool, for example NO-IP that will update its DNS everytime Your IP changes (as long as You have their software running or You set this function on Your interet router). The next step is to ask me to CNAME redirect my domain to Your dynamic DNS and vua la, You have money.4my.eu redirecting to Your computer! I didn't test virtual servers but there might be a posibility to CNAME redirect money and money2 to one dynamic DNS host and set multiple web servers as virtual hosts in apache configuration but stating money.4my.eu and money2.4my.eu as their names. I didn't test it so You may be first to do so. =)
