    I see that you don't send your updates directly to OpenDNS, but through DNS-O-Matic, so the problem could be most likely with how you configured OpenDNS as service at DNS-O-Matic.  Review this part there.

    You can also try a manual update from a web browser to see if it works then or if you get the same nohost error.  This would confirm that the problem is not with ddclient, but with your configuration at DNS-O-Matic or at OpenDNS.

    Yup. That was it. I had no idea that I had to tell dnsomatic.com that I wanted to use OpenDNS on their Your Services page. 

    Thanks!
