Since $0.00 is small we do agree. 
  http://www.dyndns.org/services/dyndns/

   "The Dynamic DNSSM service allows you to alias a dynamic IP address
   to a static hostname in any of the many domains we offer, allowing
   your computer to be more easily accessed from various locations on
   the Internet. We provide this service, for up to five (5)
   hostnames, free to the Internet community.

The larger prices involve domain and host names outside of the domains
that dyndns controls.  Also, I suspect that the initial poster has more
than five boxes to keep track of.  Still cheep....
