Dynamic DNS - Create own providers like possible with SMS Gateways
Create own providers under Dynamic DNS like it's done under SMS Gateways like to update IPv6 Tunnel endpoints when the WAN IP changes or third party DynDNS Services.
We have the same opinion like SODA. Why should I use another extra service for calling just a simple URL. Just make it like FritzOS does since years. The customer can put in its own URL, ready. Because the syntax is nearly the same at all providers...
Just needed four fields:
- username (existing)
- password (existing)
- hostname (existing)
- custom URL (missing)
So it is nearly finished, it is too easy to add it that it isn't done...
I prefer to hit my dyndns provider directly rather than go through another service requiring another registration, another provider, yet more data share.
Please add more common ddns providers plus a template to add your own like synology have done.

In version 18 you'll be able to use DNS-o-MATIC which provides a kind of gateway service to other Dynamic DNS providers.
Please provide an option where everyone can add their own favourite DDNS provider. Just a provider field and query url text box as input would do. This works fine for Synology DSM.
Query URL Variables:
__MYIP__: IPv4 address
Service provider: provider_XYZ
Agreed! There are so many providers, it would be nice to have an option to input the server address and provider information ourselves. Then we could use any DDNS provider.
