I use zonedit.  It is really good.  I am not sure if it is still free.  A while back they let you have 5 free domains and they cut it to 2 but if you had ever bought anything from them you got grandfathered in and got to keep 5. I gave them $10.  It has been a really good service for me and if you are going to pay for one, I highly recommend them.

Subject: [olug] NetworkSolutions and Dynamic DNS 
My domain (Linder.org) is hosted at Network Solutions and I've used the
free Dyn.com dynamic DNS to keep my home systems available.  Unfortunatly
on May 7th this is going away.

Two questions:
1: Does anyone know how to configure NetworkSolutions to accept a dynamic
DNS update from my home system?  Is there a script?  I couldn't even find
if this was an extra-cost option...

2: If that's not possible, what registrar can people recommend that is
cheaper than NetworkSolutions (probably easy), AND support Dynamic DNS
