The information in this page is updated in accordance with firmware version [[Media:{{{series}}}_R_00.07.04.5_WEBUI.bin|{{{series}}}_R_00.07.04.5]].

Dynamic DNS (DDNS or DynDNS) is a method of automatically updating a name server in the Domain Name System (DNS). This is most often utilized when the end user has a dynamic IP address and wants to bind it to a static hostname.

The {{{name}}} device is compatible with many different third party DNS services that provide the possibility to create a custom hostname and bind it to an IP address. The DDNS service periodically updates the IP address information of the hostname, making sure that the device remains reachable via the same hostname even in cases when its IP address has changed.

This chapter of the user manual provides an overview of the Dynamic DNS page for {{{name}}} devices.

Dynamic DNS Overview

By default, an unconfigured DDNS instance will be present in the Dynamic DNS Overview page (the figure below is an example of this). You can create more DDNS instances by entering a New configuration name and clicking the Add New button or you can edit the existing instance since it is not operational by default.

Editing a DDNS instance

To configure a DDNS instance, click the Edit button located next to it.

The figure below is an example of the edit page of the default DDNS instance called "Myddns" (already present in this device by default) and the table below provides information on the configuration fields contained in that page:
