*As of 10 April 2012 Dyn no longer offer free Dynamic DNS accounts - see [this sticky]*
Sorry for the delay in being able to respond to folks, but wanted to make sure I had accurate information before I posted anything. Dyn has shifted away from offering free DNS, but now offer Pro DNS Trials. Users will be able to sign up for a Pro trial with a credit card and be able to take advantage of all that Pro has to offer for 14 days at no cost to them. At any point in time, users can cancel their trial, and as a thanks for trying it out, they will be able to keep one of their host names for free.
To take advantage of this, new users will need to create an account at https://www.dyndns.com/account/entrance/
After you have created and confirmed your new account, you will see this screen giving you options to choose from:
At the bottom, you will note that there is a link for signing up for a trial (note that since taking this screen shot the trial period has dropped to 14 days). Clicking this will start the process of beginning your trial, and creating host names. Again, you can cancel your trial at any time within 14 days of signing up and still be able to keep a host name for free.
If you get the message that you have already reached your maximum alloted host names (or something like that) and you are currently at zero host names, you will need to visit http://dyn.com/dns/dyndns-pro-free-trial/ and click the "start free trial" button in yellow.
Please note - This only effects new accounts. We have grandfathered 4 million existing users whose accounts will not be effected.

I'm annoyed at my IP Camera manufacturer now as they have promoted the use of DYNDNS and set it up in the firmware of the IP camera web UI. I shall not be signing up for a trial, and the removal of the ability to use a free host name has made sure I will avoid any paid services of DYNDNS in the future. Many times I have used free servies of companies to go on to buy their permium services, but this sort of thing really puts me off!
