Dynamic DNS service (DynDNS)

Use our Dynamic DNS service if you would like to host your own web server, mail server,
ftp server, etc. but you do not have a static ip. Combine the power of dynamic DNS
with a site monitor for a free failover solution.

Please watch our flash tutorial if you need assistance configuring the DNS control panel.

 

Set the TTL's of your zone's A records low, like 180 seconds. We will allow settings as low as 5 seconds but
anything lower than 180 seconds and caching name servers may ignore this time and just slow things down.
