Dynamic DNS set-up is easy.

Setting up Dynamic DNS can be done in just a few steps, with no hassle and no wait. Just connect the device to your home router and allow external traffic for your router and modem. This means setting up port forwarding on your router and enabling bridge mode on your modem. Then follow our quick setup instructions below.

1. Sign Up

Sign-up for a Dyn.com account when you buy Dynamic DNS. If you have an account or have already purchased, simply log in.

2. Add a new hostname

Once you’ve logged into the interface, navigate to “DynDNS Pro” and click “Add New Hostname” to create a new web address that will be linked to your device (ex: mycomputer@dyndns.org, webcam@dyndns.org).

3. Test your hostname

Test the hostname you created by typing it into a web browser bar outside your home network. If it loads, then you are connected properly.

4. Install the updater

Lastly, install the Dyn updater client. Some devices may already have Dyn’s updater client pre-installed; for these, simply navigate to the application’s DynDNS section for set-up.
