DynDNS as reliable solution

Can I rely on DynDNS service to host with them our DNS records for a website/Mail services hosted on the internet?
I am thinking to use DynDNS to make it easy if I want to change hosting servers without having to contact our registrar each time.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Dynamic DNS has a spcific use in the grand DNS topology. Usually people use DYDNS when they dont have a static IP address. If you have a static IP address, I would not use DYDNS. there is a limitiation. if you use DIGG - and compare a static and a non static ip- you will see that the NS records for a DYDNS will not show up. sure- you can use dydns for just about everything. however, the limitations and diffuculties of dydns are generally averted by having a static IP address. now that was a blanket statement, that said - dydns has several services to offer. it depends on what you need. lets say your isp stopped port 25 for mail. you could just use dydns for mail forwarding. they can send the mail to you on port 2525, thereby bypasing the ISP trying to stop you from getting mail. I like there DNS services vwery much. however, i would much rather like a static IP if my wife would let me buy one for our home account. I hope this scrathes the surface for you.
