Why not your own dns of the box?  I use godaddy to point traffic to my 
server and it does dns for my domains on it's own...i am using 
virtualmin.  I don't know which free dns service you are using now.  I 
don't know if opendns allows that kind of flexibility.  dyndns might 
work(unless that's who youa re using now).  everydns is now owned by dyn..
