You'll receive an email address asking you to validate you're still using it. As long as you validate every month, you can keep it for free.

That is true but what if your not by your pc ? I don't use my phone for email.

How long do you have until you can validate ?

You can also download the no-ip update client for your pc. This application will automatically update the ip address and afaik you won't need to validate manually anymore

Kev - I'm having a problem with creating a dynamic dns address

When I try to create a host over at http://noip.com, it won't let me delete the IP address field. It's auto-filled in. Your instructions say to keep it blank, but I don't see how that's possible.

Could you advise?

Just keep it like that. It should point to the server ip. If it doesn't, set it up anyways and then use the update client to refresh the ip.

I run it as a service in the background because there that option in the program.

I actually have the same issue. I think it only counts if the IP actually changes, but I'm not sure. I bought a domain recently and it supports ddns, so I don't need no-ip anymore...
