With the move to name.com how do we continue to update our standard dns entries dynamically?
Also, how do we register new domains and use the dyndns client to update host entries dynamically?
The Standard DNS service will be decommissioned end of May, 2020. You could migrate to OCI, but this does not support Dynamic DNS updates yet. So your best bet is to look for another Dynamic DNS hosting service which can support your domain.
Regarding new domains, you register them at name.com or any other registrar. And, as I said, you choose a Dynamic DNS hosting service for your domains.
After all, you may say "Good Bye" to Oracle/Dyn, because it looks like they cannot support your needs in the future.
The Standard DNS service will be decommissioned end of May, 2020.
This date has actually recently been extended to May 31, 2022. At present, all aspects of this service remain in tact and are supported by Oracle/Dyn until this new end date. Recent as in within the past 2 weeks.

Oops, sorry; I was not aware of this change.
Don't be - as I shared its a recent change and I don't believe its been shared outside of emails to customers. Its easy to mistake those for marketing/automated communications sometimes
