DigitalOcean has an IRC channel on freenode; #digitalocean

Free DNS hosting

They offer free DNS hosting with a nice API, so it's possible to use it as dynamic DNS as well - once you detect a change in the local IP, you can alter the entry. The TTL is 900 seconds, which is not immediate, but tolerable.

They also seem to add domain privacy by default, also for free, to any domain, which is hosted (ns records are with digitalocean) with them.
