10 Dynamic DNS Services

Joshua Wood Joshua Wood Profile: Joshua Wood

If you have an Internet Service Provider that isn’t providing you with a static IP address for some reason then it can be a really hassle to continually find out your IP address. There are a variety of reasons why you might want to connect to your home or work place such as:

    – Retriving files that are at home while you are at work
    - Running a home based web or FTP site
    - Various webcam or IP based security devices

There are services that will track your IP address and give you a nice name to refer to the IP address with. There is usually a client that you will need to install on your computer or server that will report that IP address of your home or work to the DDNS provider. The client usually small and very light weight. With the exception of a few companies the “no-frills” version is usually free.
