What is Dynamic DNS?

Dynamic DNS is a DNS service, which provides the option to change the IP address of one or multiple DNS records automatically when the IP address of your device is changed dynamically by the internet provider.

The service is also called DDNS or Dyn DNS in technical jargon.

If you don’t have a static IP, then the IP changes each time you reconnect to the Internet. To avoid manual update of your records every time the IP changes, you can set up Dynamic DNS for your domain.

The pros of Dynamic DNS

If you are considering a static IP address, it is important to remember that there are many different advantages that come with having one. Naturally there are also disadvantages. One of the downsides of configuring a static IP address is that it can grow quite expensive. Dynamic DNS is often regarded as a much more portable option and it will continue to work whether you have a dynamic or static IP address.

The way that Dynamic DNS works is by giving a network device the ability to notify DNS servers to automatically change in real time, alongside the active DNS configuration, IP addresses, configured hostnames and some other information. This is something that would normally have to be initiated by the administrator.

Benefits from the Dynamic DNS

Some of the main benefits of setting a Dynamic DNS include:

Switching to a Dynamic DNS is a fairly easy process and whether you are a business owner or you are interested in working remotely with the help of a VPN, needing remote access for your devices or just hosting your own personal website, it will be helpful to have the advantage of Dynamic DNS on your side.
