Domain redirection

Hello, I just bought a new domain and I can't setup properly.

I want to redirect everything to my house, but I don't have static ip, it's everything fine if I setup the A-record in mx records to my ip, but this ip change, then I'm trying to set up to another domain than it's updating the ip automatically (whatever.ddns.net from noip).

I removed my ip from mx records and set the NS record to whatever.ddns.net. But it's not working, and I don't want to use the forwarding because I don't want only the port 80, I want to setup more than a service there (ssh, mail, etc). Any solution?

It sounds like you're on the right track pointing the nameservers to a dynamic DNS provider, but it is hard to tell where you are having troubles. That means directing your domain would be taken care of by that other provider, so make sure it is set up properly on their end.  It usually takes a couple of hours for the switchover, but it can take up to 48 hours.  You can post the domain for external testing.

For it to work properly you would want to turn off the DNS here and just use that of your Dynamic DNS provider.  First you would add your domain in your account with them, and that is were you'll add any records for the website, email, etc.

 

At GoDaddy you would just need to make sure the domain is only using the nameservers for your Dynamic DNS provider.  Note that slots 1 and 2 are required and can not be deleted, but you can edit them to the first two from your other provider and more can be added.  So when you're done the nameservers the domain came with should no longer be there and it should only have a matching set from the DNS provider.  Then the DNS records at GoDaddy should be blank with a note that the DNS is managed at another provider.

Thanks for the answer Nate.

The domain it's montilla.uk.

Forwarding to https://montimoran.ddns.net

Permanent (301)

Forward only (I already tried with Forward with masking but the same, not working)

This one it's working properly, connecting with any port, to website, ssh, etc, but montilla.uk it's working only with website.

My mx record it's everything like default I only add:

NS@montimoran.ddns.net1 Hour

 

I don't know what else I can do.
