I had this problem. Go to www.osd.org and sign up.
There client actually works to update ip address's (grab the 3rd part unix
Then you get a nice domain to ssh to, and if you stick the program in a
cron job, or in the start up script of your ppp connection, then your
domain should remain accurate.
Also easier to remeber than an ip address.
