New Add-on: Cloudflare DynDNS

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f7397430348>

As I have my own Domains hosted at Cloudflare, I wanted to have the option to use my own DNS to connect to my Home Assistant instance using VPN.

For that I created a Cloudflare DynDNS Hassio Add-on, which updates the DNS with your current external IP.

The Add-on is avaible here:

What is the difference with letsdnsocloud ?

I didn’t found that Add-on in my research, before starting creating my own, but after looking into letsdnsocloud, the goal of the Add-on is kind of different.

letsdnsocloud uses cloudflare and letsencrypt to make it possible to access your Home Assistant instance directly from outside. My goal was only to have a DNS which resolves to my Home external IP, so that I’m able to use VPN to connect to my Home Assistant instance. For that, you don’t need Letsencrypt.

On the other side, as small differences in the cloudflare implementation, this one supports the new API Tokens and ipv6.
