I have an Ubuntu 11.04 server set up to host some websites and I have a dynamic IP address. I am using to handle the DNS routing to the IP address and would like to install their DNS client on my system, so whenever the IP address changes, it will automatically update their records.

The client comes in three flavors and I do not know which to install. They are all the same version (1.6-2).

You must use the .deb package. Simply double click the downloaded file and the ubuntu software center will appear. Wait a moment and you are able to click on "install".
