Would you like to operate your own web server or IP cam and access it publicly?
The problem is changing the IP address (dynamic) of your DSL line, usually every 24 hours. This means that your home network can no longer be accessed using external static methods.
With our Dynamic DNS (DDNS) service, we offer you the option of operating your applications on a mobile, external static basis.
Anyone who wishes to operate a home server, web server, FTP server, NAS, team viewer or IP cam at home can set up a DynDNS account and, by doing so, make their own home network accessible "publicly" with a fixed IP address.
Simply register for free, create the update URL and input the data from your account (DDClient) to your router,
e.g. Fritzbox from AVM or Speedport router from Telekom or, if your router does not have the option
-> DynDNS provider -> "other provider" or "custom", use our DynDNS Update Tool V3.0e
You can find detailed instructions with tips and information in your account (DDClient) and on our FAQ
page. It is
essential that you follow the safety instructions
if you use a DDNS service and open your home network with port sharing enabled!
You can create up to 3 free DynDNS URLs (Pro Users + 10 host names) for private and commercial use, whether for home, company or school.

Using the DynDNS service as a Free User
For applications such as operating your home computer as a web server to publish websites, a Free User account is the right and affordable choice. The connection is made in direct forwarding mode (domain forwarding to your IP address) to the port you entered and the http protocol. If you need another protocol, we recommend upgrading to a Pro User account. The port setting can be changed at any time.
You do not have to be a "server master" to run your own web server or online IP cam. You can find detailed instructions in your DDClient. Our Support Team are happy to help you by answering your questions by email.
As a free user, you can use our DDNS service in different ways:
- with a router that supports dynamic updates (DynDNS provider [user defined]), e.g. Fritzbox
- without additional software and router entries, with a manual update from the Free User account menu
- You don't want your computer to run all the time, but should be publicly accessible with your current IP address
when it starts?
Use the DynDNS "Custom Url" for free users, no router entries are required, just enable the port
in the router and start "Custom Url" - done! The update interval timer is set to 25 minutes. The update tool
must be active.
You can find more information in the DynDNS manual and in the FAQs in your account.
- with our Update Tool V3.0e [for Windows, Linux, MAC and other operating systems (JAVA client)]
- determine your own, current IP address - How is my IP address
? or use GeoIP location
Last update = time of the last IP check of your router, manual update or Update Tool
Using DynDNS service as a Pro User
A Pro User account is available for professional applications. The use of a Pro User account is extensive and covers all your needs.
Some examples of applications:
Game servers, NAS, home servers, web servers, databases, routers, FTP, IP cams, VPN, VPS, remote desktops, team viewers, surveillance systems, heating controls, solar systems, Teamspeak 3, video surveillance and many other applications.
- You have the choice of different protocols: http, https, ftp, ftps, ftpes
- 10 DynDNS host names can be created, with 10 different domain names to choose (In order to make it fair for
others users, each user can only use one host name once)
- Features included: A Record IPv4, AAA Record IPv6, NS Record Name Server, MX Record Mail Exchange, SPF
filter, CNAME Wildcard function, port scan, ping test, update counter with a RESET function
- A manual IP update is also possible in your Pro User account
- You can change the DynDNS settings later using the "Settings" button
Users who do not have their home computer online permanently can use the "Custom Url". When your computer starts up, an IP update with the "Custom Url" is immediately carried out on your DynDNS host and then every 15 minutes. This means that your computer does not have to be in constant operation but when starting up, you can reach immediately your computer with the DynDNS host publicly. For an IP update a web browser that works with "auto start" is required. You do not need to make any DynDNS settings in the router, the "Custom Url" carries out the IP update. Each DynDNS host can also be updated individually. Just release the required port in the router and start "Custom Url" - done! Further information can be found in your Pro User account under "Instructions".
For users with Speedport routers, we have programmed a special update URL, thanks to which this router can also be used for an IP update. To do so, the Speedport router must be equipped with the "other provider" or "custom" option.
Types of IP updates:
different router •
manual update •
The IP update is always displayed in real time during an update
If your router does not support the option "DynDNS provider [custom]", you can use our Update Tool to update your IP. The newly designed "Update Tool V3.0e" can be used by both Free Users and Pro Users at the same time. You can freely choose between Free and Pro User use when operating the tool. The update time can be set continuously between 15 - 60 minutes. For the proper functioning of the tool, JAVA must be installed on your computer/server or notebook (the appropriate version for your operating system). You can find further information under DynDNS Update Tool V3.0e
