Ddclient not auto updating
In the Google Domains section there's an option to set up dynamic DNS for a given domain name.
You just specific the subdomain (I named mine 'scooter' as seen below) and pointed it to one of my domain names that I had registered with Google Domains.
Okay, so maybe I'll try the DDclient, since that looks to be a supported client. Since I was running an Ubuntu operating system, I chose to use the apt-get package manager.
