Get your Synology NAS to notify you when your IP changes

I have a residential internet service. That means I never know when my IP address is going to change. But that is ok because I use DDNS Updater 2 in order to automatically update the DNS for my domain with the IP address of my Synology NAS when it changes. But the problem with that is DNS updates do not immediately propagate to every DNS server on the internet. It could take up to 24 hours until your domain is finally updated with the new IP.
