I have used a wget to get the latest versions from the site. I then had to type in my account details which went fine. I try to type in the address in a url outside my home and that url gives me nothing.

You are going to need to provide more details to get this question answered. What is your dns hostname, and what ip is it set to. Are you behind a NAT router, or does your computer have a public IP. If NAT is involved, is there a port forward? Is the update client getting your internal NAT address is: 192.168.1..., or is it getting your genuine internet IP? Has the DNS record even been updated at all by the client? – Bailey S Nov 16 '12 at 20:35

using the (sudo apt-get install no-ip) or (sudo apt-get install noip2) does not work in the newer Ubuntu OS. You will need to (sudo apt-get install ddclient) and configure the connection inside of that.
