Dynamic DNS (Domain Name Service) is a method of keeping a domain name linked to a changing (dynamic) IP address. With most Cable and DSL connections, you are assigned a dynamic IP address and that address is used only for the duration of that specific connection. To properly configure thefeature follow the steps below:

Step 2: The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank (nothing). Click on OK.
Step 3: Click on the Tools tab at the top and then click onon the lefthand side.
Step 4: For service, select your DDNS service provider from the drop-down and configure the following:
- Server Name – The name of the DDNS server.
- User Name – Enter the username for your DDNS account.
- Password – The password for your DDNS account.
- Verify Password – Re-enter the password to prevent any typing errors.
- Domain Name – The complete hostname to be updated.
- Enable Wildcard: If enabled, all subdomains of your domain name map to your current IP address. If disabled, no subdomains of your domain name have an IP address.
- Enable Backup MX: If enabled, all subdomains of your domain name map to your current IP address. If disabled, no subdomains of your domain name have an IP address.
- Mail Exchanger: Define mail exchanger for the domain name. If omitted, the mail exchanger will be set to the domain name.
WAN Port Binding: If bound on the WAN port, the domain name will be mapped to the IP address of the WAN port.
