    Dynamic DNS (DDNS) is a method of automatically updating a name server in the Domain Name Server (DNS), often in real time, with the active DDNS configuration of its configured hostnames, addresses or other information

    Hi Friends,
    DDNS means Dynamic DNS (Domain Name System). DNS is what translates from names like google dot com to IP addresses. The dynamic part comes in to play when a system is located somewhere that does not have a permanent (static) IP address. For instance, if someone runs a web server at home with a typical Internet provider, the public IP address for their home is subject to change. By installing DDNS software and subscribing to a DDNS service, the IP address of the home can always be found, even when it changes. The software periodically contacts the service and if the ip address has changed, the service will update DNS accordingly so www dot “atmyhome” dot com can always be found.

    DDNS is dynamic Domain Name System, a method of keeping a domain name linked to a changing IP address as not all computers use static IP addresses.

    Dynamic DNS is a service that automatically and periodically updates your DNS’s A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6) records when your IP address changes. These IP changes are made by your Internet provider.

    The Domain Name System (DNS) enables the translation of "people-friendly." Internet addresses into IP addresses that can be recognized by computers. DDNS stands for Dynamic Domain Name System. This is a service that maps internet domain names to IP addresses. A DDNS service allows you to access your home computer from any part of the world. It also lets anyone hosting a web or FTP server dvertise a public name to prospective users.

    However, unlike DNS that works only with static IP addresses, DDNS has also been designed to support dynamic (changing) IP addresses, like those assigned by a DHCP server.

    The Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS) is a premium service that assigns your device a fixed domain name even though you are using a dynamic Internet IP Address.
    The reason a DDNS service is unnecessary for networks that have static IP addresses is because the domain name doesn't need to know what the IP address is after it's initially told of it the first time.

    Dynamic DNS is a method of automatically updating a name server in the Domain Name Server, often in real time, with the active DDNS configuration of its configured hostnames, addresses or other information. The term is used to describe two different concepts.

    Dynamic DNS or DDNS fixes all the issues of the ever-changing residential IP addresses by identifying your address with a consistent domain name.

    DDNS stands for dynamic DNS, or more specifically, dynamic Domain Name System. It's a service that maps internet domain names to IP addresses. It's a DDNS service that lets you access your home computer from anywhere in the world.
