So I'm using this "free" DNS service called ydns. I was told that using it would eliminate the tedious task of updating my IP address for my website and website(s). But no, no, no! The DNS domain pointed to yesterday's IP, 126.96.36.199. Today's is 188.8.131.52. I'm not saying it changes every day, but it changes at least once every two weeks. I know that it still points to yesterday's IP because when I try to connect to my IRC server, it says mrgiga.ydns.eu (184.108.40.206) in my IRC client. Why would they advertise a non-working DNS service and how do I fix this?
EDIT: I checked in my router settings, and it said that the last boot was 7 1/2 hours ago (2:30 in the morning!?), which means it restarted itself while I was asleep. So what is going on here too? Shouldn't the IP that the DNS points to have changed by now?
