Following on from my video on OpenDNS, heres how to use DDClient to automatically tell OpenDNS (via DNS-O-Matic) when your Dynamic IP address changes.
This is a great alternative if your router has no custom DynDNS config options, such as BT Home Hub 3.

DDClient can also be used with other services such as DynDNS, No-IP, and DtDNS.

Install & Setup Instructions:
sudo apt-get install ddclient
sudo nano /etc/ddclient.conf
daemon=3600
ssl=yes
protocol=dyndns2
use=web, web=myip.dnsomatic.com
server=updates.dnsomatic.com
login=Your OpenDNS login
password=Your OpenDNS Password
all.dnsomatic.com

sudo nano /etc/default/ddclient
run_ipup="false"
run_daemon="true"
daemon_interval=3600

To run it initially:
sudo ddclient -daemon=0 -debug -verbose -noquiet

Once setup it will automatically run when your system is booted up, and send updates once every one hour (3600 seconds)
