I have a small website hosted in my home server, which has dynamic IP from the ISP. The ISP changes my home home ip about once every 3 months. I am using free DYN updater to get a static hostname mapping to my home ip. However, in Godaddy's nameserver A record, I can only enter dynamic ip, not the hostname. Once the ISP changes my home ip, my web site will not work, and I have to change the nameserver to point to the new ip. My questions are 1. Is there any service that Dyn provide so that I can solve this issue without transfering domain register in GoDaddy? 2. Is there any way I can get email notification as soon as my dynamic ip changed, so that I can act quickly to change the nameserver record? Thanks!

You can't run a nameserver on a dynamic IP address. You can leave your domain registration where it is and move your DNS to [Standard DNS]. Then you'll be able to have your web site's IP address updated by your update client directly. : http://dyn.com/dns/dyn-standard-dns/
