That just comes up with an empty page for me. Does one need a "scribd" 
login to access that page? Is that your personal storage?

Since I don't run Debian I have no idea what would be in 
/etc/init.d/bind9 on that platform. Please either show the relevant 
parts of that startup script, or ask a Debian expert to explain what's 
in it.

What is configured for the RNDC key? Do you have an /etc/rndc.conf or 
/etc/rndc.key file on the system? What the contents of your "controls" 
statement in named.conf? Whatever/whoever set up your named.conf should 
have also configured RNDC if that's what the system uses to stop the 
nameserver process.

Note that this is a basic operational issue with stopping and starting 
your nameserver daemon, I'm not sure what relevance it has to your 
attempts to configure Dynamic DNS.
