CloudFlare Dynamic DNS fails when domain name uses a Second Level TLD
When using Dynamic DNS with CloudFlare if the domain name used has a second level TLD such as .co.uk the update will fail.
The cause is the following line within /etc/inc/dyndns.class (About line number 733)
$bottom_host_name = $host_names[count($host_names)-2] . "." . $host_names[count($host_names)-1];
This assumes that the zone name for CloudFlare will always be the highest two components of the host name.

Both CloudFlare and GratisDNS used the same logic that Namecheap used to use, which has several potential problems. I converted them over to match Namecheap with separate Hostname and Domain name fields, to avoid this and future problems.
