I don't worry about such things and note that it just works for me.

At home I actually have a router which supports dyndns directly, so I
don't have ddclient running. At my mums she doesn't have a router that
supports dyndns (well, she might but I setup ddclient assuming she
didn't), but her PC is off right now so I can't see the config.

I am pretty sure I just took the default settings and chucked in the
host, user and password.
