    funny how this forum wont let you use ip in a search term :)

    okay what I got is a plesk server 7.5 FC, on a 1&1 server.
    what I want is to have a subdomain of a domain on my server to point to my computer. my isp gives me a dynamic ip.

    is there anythng that I can download and install on the server to allow for dynamic ips.

    I would like to have a subdomain of one of my domains rather that having one at no-ip etc.

    is there such a utility? or is there another workaround that I am missing.

    Create a CNAME record in DNS (for your subdomain) to lead to your no-ip hostname. This will update the dns for the subdomain lead to no-ip, meaning if no-ip changes, the subdomain does too.

    Set up your server (locally, of course) to utilize the subdomain, not the no-ip name. When the DNS delegates, users will be directed to your ip. Name-based hosting will allow them to visit your subdomain site, instead of your no-ip site, when coming from the subdomain hostname.

    That should be what you were looking for...
