There are already several services which provide dynamic DNS; the main downside is that I don't think there are any free ones
I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but you might want to check into The Public DNS Service. To quote from their site:
The Public DNS is useful if you:
- Can't get free service from an ISP and don't want to do it yourself
- Need secondary DNS servers
- Need MX records for a virtual domain
- Want control over your DNS records: change DNS frequently, changing ISPs soon
- Are inside of a firewall and need publicly-accessible name servers outside of your firewall
- Need name servers that are closer to the North American Internet backbones
And, it's free. OTOH, I've never used the service, so YMMV.
