Ok, now that you have an account with them, on their main page
1. click on "Sign in".  It is in the way top right corner, above everything, including the "sign up button"
2. Click on Add a Host
3. It will automatically choose your WAN IP, if you are doing it for a different computer, then just put it in here.  Also add you host name, but with the free version, you have to choose from their domains, so you choose only the host name, not the domain.
4. Click on Add host. to save.
5. For Unbuntu, http://www.noip.com/support/knowledgebase/installing-the-linux-dynamic-update-client-on-ubuntu/

and that should be it...
