I use namecheap.com for my DNS. Works fantastic. I used to be on a provider that changed IP's far more frequently than my current provider, and it worked with ease. I'd simply login, change the old IP to the new IP for my domains, and hit submit. The change took a mere 20 minutes at the most to take effect.

If I'd ever get around to it, I could write a little script that would detect the IP change on the server, then update namecheap's information on the fly, but it happens so rarely that it's not been a priority.

About serving SSL with Apache, do you have any good resources on how to set that up? I've had a heck of time getting Apache with any form of SSL to work (OpenSSL, mod_ssl).
