I can highly recommend ZoneEdit (http://www.zoneedit.com/)
Unlike DynDNS, it assumes that you already have your own domain name
However, you get the first 5 domains completely free. And each domain can
have an unlimited* number of subdomains and hosts.
Their web interface is extremely easy to use and highly functional, and there
are a number of clients available for all major platforms including Linux
However, if you don't already have a domain name, and you just want an easy
way of finding your home PC, then DynDNS's free service may be what you want.
But if you already have a domain name, and are just looking for some DNS
servers, I think you will find ZoneEdit hard to beat.
* Unlimited = way more than I've ever tried to set up. I'm sure there is a
limit at some point.
