I have a subdomain set up duckdns.org to update with my IP every 6 hours. It was working fine for a long time and now it isn't updating.

There is a cron task. Every 6 hours, 'nobody' does
/usr/local/bin/curl https://duckdns.org/update/<subdomain>/<token>
When you run that manually from your Freenas account, it normally would return 'OK' if it worked, and 'KO' if it didn't.

However, now it returns:
<html>
<head><title>301 Moved Permanently</title></head>
<body bgcolor="white">
<center><h1>301 Moved Permanently</h1></center>
<hr><center>nginx/1.4.6 (Ubuntu)</center>
</body>
</html>


I can still log into duckdns.org and update the IP manually. I have no way to contact them. Do you think the problem is at their end or something with my Freenas?

I posted too soon. Problem solved. For some reason THEIR domain now requires 'www.' in front of 'duckdns.org'

I hate it when people do that.

You mean adding the requirement of 'www.', or posting too soon? :p

The www. part. It's such a pain and so intuitive.

First you try example.com, but that leads nowhere. So you google it and the first result is www.example.com! It's really irritating.
