[Cmdlet] Update OVH DynHOST

Hi all,

As a gamer, I like to run private servers to play with my friends. Some times ago, there were plenty of free Dynamic DNS services but this is no more the case. Fortunatelly my DNS is registred at OVH and they offer the DynHOST service which is a free Dynamic DNS Service.

To correctly use this service you have to contact their servers from time to time so they can update the DNS record, therefore, I wrote this little Powershell Cmdlet. I wont explain how to configure and use the OVH DynHost service because it’s already explained here

And here is an example of how to use it :

Now just create a Scheduled task that will run this script 😉

Enjoy !
