Hi a051219d-de02-4752-b44e-9c8ec1b87ce8, Apologies for the delayed response. To address your questions
There is no change to this product. Please continue to renew and manage your domain at https://account.dyn.com
Prior to May 31, 2020, you will need to migrate your DNS services. Oracle values your business, and we hope that you will consider our OCI DNS product for its affordability and expanded services. Below you will find links to our help guides on how to migrate your DNS zones into OCI. Please note that a migration tool is expected in August to provide a no-downtime transition for our Express customers.
If you’re a Dyn Standard DNS customer, follow the steps documented https://help.dyn.com/migrating-dyn-services-to-oracle-cloud/transfer-standard-to-oci-dns/
Oracle + Dyn
The documentation on the link does not exists. And still there is no answer about the Dynamic DNS. Will it work after migration, as it does now?
Or do we have search for another DynDNS provider ?
Thank you for letting me know about the link, the link should be working now. You can find its information via https://www.oracle.com/corporate/acquisitions/dyn/technologies/migrate-your-services/transfer-standard-to-oci-dns/
OCI DNS will continue to allow you to access your website or devices via your domain after migrating from your current Dyn standard DNS services
Thank you for a quick response.
Still I have a question about dynamic DNS.
On my home server I use the client inadyn, to update the ip address in my dyn.com account.
What settings for that client will be then, after canceling the Dyn Standart DNS Service by dyn.com and moving to the Oracle cloud infrastructure?
I actually sent this exact question to DynDNS support. I was a TZO customer, who got migrated to DynDNS, and now sounds like being migrated to Oracle cloud services. Although, it sounds like you should keep your domain registration with DYN, but only migrate DNS to Oracle. Also, at this time Dynamic DNS client update is not something that is currently supported. There is some REST/API documentation that exists that appears to be quite vague which might allow for functionality for Dynamic DNS updates, but no actual client exists which has the same functionality of ddclient, inadyn, or other update client which may be in use.
Does that sum it up?
That certainly does not sound like a working transparent migration path. A script for seamless DNS migration was mentioned. Is there a chance that an update client is going to be written to handle Dynamic DNS customers, or as the original poster asked should we be shopping other providers for this service?
As an FYI --
I was able to migrate fairly easily to cloudflare's FREE DNS services (including using ddclient for Dynamic DNS updates).
1) Sign up for new account on cloudflare
2) Add site ; it goes out and gets the basic DNS records and asks if you want to import
3) Had to manually add some TXT records for DMARC, DKIM, etc
4) Went to DynDns and updated my domain registrar and changed DNS servers to the two cloudflare servers that were provided during process listed above and removed DynDNS servers.
5) Waited for records to be updated (not sure how long it actually took. Did it at night, and it was working by the morning).
6) Updated ddclient to work with cloudflare (took some tweaking including updating ddclient version to work with cloudflare).
I do not require anything fancy, so this worked for me. With DNS now successfully migrated, I can cancel Dynamic DNS services with DynDNS. Now I will focus on shopping for place for domain registrar. It appears I can keep that service moving forward with DynDNS, but I might price cloudflare and others just to see if it is more cost effective.
Not sure if the FREE cloudflare DNS services will be enough for everyone, but it appears it might be at least worth investigating.
I also read that about migrating to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure DNS. Our company has credentials for DynDNS and I wanted to know whether we had to purchase a new set of credentials (user and password) for Oracle and so... I'm not quite certain about the cost for that since on the Pricing Page (https://cloud.oracle.com/en_US/iaas/pricing ) they only speak about the limits and how much one does have to pay if they are crossed.
Do you have any official info on the subject? I'm having some troubles with the phone call to the Support Number, so in the mean time I thought this medium would do.
Thanks in advance. GOD bless you.
