Clients lose connection until the interface is restarted somehow if server changes IP address

I have a wireguard server that runs on a computer that has a dynamic real
ip address. It also has a dynamic DNS address that is updated if the IP
The clients connecting to it work but if the ip address is changed, they
will still try to connect the old IP address. If i restart the wireguard
interface (ip link up/down etc) the connection is established again.

The solution would be that in case of connection loss the DNS name to be
updated periodically instead of just trying the old address.
Can this be done?
