    I have a webserver that i was using comcast to host, then i switched to bellsouth dsl. The problem is i can get to the server which is at dailylol.dynalias.org only locally, if i type in the ip 98.64.192.--- it will not load same with the ftp server, any ideas, i have changed the dyndns account to forward so im lost as to what may be the problem, any help would be great thanks.

    If bellsouth's terms of service do not permit running a public server on your account, they may be blocking incoming connections to common server ports.

    I just tried a tracert to dailylol.dynalias.org and the reverse DNS lookup for that URL came back as 192.168.1.2 which is totally wrong. The whole 192.168.x.x range of IP addresses is reserved for private IP addresses on LANs, not public IP addresses on the Internet.

    I can not speak for Bellsouth's DSL service. We have AT&T Midwest DSL (or whatever they call themselves this month) and the only time I notice our dynamic IP address changing is after the modem has been turned off for a few hours. I have not seen it change with the modem being on for a few days or if there was a quick power cycling of the modem.

    EDIT: For your last question; depending on what you wish to achieve, there may be be alternatives to hosting your own FTP server.
