This is how I configured the DNS settings: Implementing an SSL certificate can be fairly complicated for the novice (myself included).
This next area will rely on your expertise and I cannot provide much guidance.
This means you will receive warnings from web browsers each time you connect.
These warnings can minimized by trusting the certificate and this may be fine for some people.
A friend had told me about Zone Edit (zoneedit.com) so I decided to check them out. Zone Edit offers a free DNS service, but it is pretty well hidden (they are a company and I’m sure would prefer you select a paid service).
To find it again, I had to select to delete my account.
customer service was also very helpful – something you may not get with a free SSL certificate.
I was able to import my new SSL certificate and my subdomain went from to .
The only reason I was able to accomplish the task was because my system did most of the work for me.This keeps the dynamic domain name (foo.dyn-dns.com) in contact with the IP address for your home network.The issue with many dynamic DNS services is that you must use a self-signed SSL certificate for a secure connection (as far as I know).Zone Edit is fairly well-known and may be widely supported.
Now that you have dynamic DNS configured, you will need to configure things with your domain name registrar.
which we still do :)” Now that Zone Edit is configured, you will need to keep your dynamic DNS service aware of your IP address.
