DynDNS does not charge for a basic account.  They have "value added" services 
for which they do ask compensation, though.  I have a DynDNS account that I got 
free earlier this year, so unless they've made a recent change - and my last 
visit to the site a few weeks ago didn't hint at it - then their basic service 
is still free, and allows linking up to five domains.
