I'm happy to announce that we've begun a beta test for support for Apple Wide Area Bonjour with DynDNS.com, which also enables DDNS with Apple's networking devices:
We've assembled a couple of guides to help you get started:
If you have any comments on this beta, please provide them on this post. If you need support for your devices, please create a new question here in the DynDNS.com Community, and we'll be sure to help you out!

Quick question — does the service support Long-Lived Queries and Update Leases?
On an unrelated note — the Airport Utility v5.4.2 is a bit broken and tends to squish TSIG keys to lowercase; just thought I'd mention that on the off-chance it saves your support reps some head scratching.

I am having problems setting this up, even following what look like an excellent set of instructions. I even bought the CustomDNS sub I needed to, just to see if it would work, because your forums, this post included, gave me a really good impression that even though it was experimental, I'd get a helping hand setting it up. With luck I could help improve it.
So, I submitted a question to the forums and then emailed support (ticket 1409968) to see if they could help. They told me I was on my own and to contact Apple.
That's not the kind of helpful attitude you project here. In fact, what I did was exactly what you suggested, and what I got was something of a middle finger.
I'd love to work with you (and Apple if necessary, but I'm not a company and their support will probably not be as good as your comms channels with them) to improve this and ideally get it working. If you're not keen to do that though, let me know and I'll stop wasting my time and take a refund. I'd rather the former of course.
Please let me know what your take on it is. I spent a long time trying to set this up. I happily ponied up the cash. I then spent some time writing up a pretty detailed synopsis of the problem. All I got was a door in the face.

I've tried to get this working with my Airport Extreme running version 7.5 (75000.17) and using version 5.5 (550.29) of the Airport Utility but can't get it to work. I've checked over the instructions several times and can't see where I'm going wrong.
I can get my laptop to work though so I guess that I have the DNS set up correctly and I really can't see the difference in what I'm doing between the laptop and the airport.
Any suggestions? Is there something missing in the instructions for the Airport?

The settings for the base station
and here is the host name section:
I did wonder whether I needed to share anything on the airport to get t to work so I published my printer, that turned up as various entries but none with my global hostname.

Will this work ok with a subdomain instead of a base domain? ie have Custom DNS service on sub.domain.com and configure the rest accordingly, so hostname in AirPort would be "airport.sub.domain.com" etc?
