I suspect that you wanted:
              su -m noip -c '/usr/local/bin/noip2' 2>&1 >/dev/null

but I suggest not running the updater as a daemon at all.

I have the dhcp client run it automatically when the address changes,
by creating /etc/dhclient-exit-hooks as follows:


  updater_prog = /usr/local/bin/noip2 
  if [ x$reason = xREBOOT ]   ||        \
     [ x$old_ip_address = x ] ||        \
     [ x$old_ip_address != x$new_ip_address ]; then
      if [ -x $updater_prog ]; then 
          ${updater_prog} -i "$new_ip_address"
          logger "dhclient-exit-hooks cannot find updater $updater_prog"
