PHPFusion Dynamic DNS Services (DDNS)

DDNS services create permanent names for dynamic IP addresses ( changing ).

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 DNS service that lets you access your home computer from anywhere in the world.

DDNS serves a similar purpose to the internet's Domain Name System (DNS) in that DDNS lets anyone hosting a web or FTP server advertise a public name to prospective users.

However, unlike DNS which only works with static IP addresses, DDNS is designed to also support dynamic (changing) IP addresses, such as those assigned by a DHCP server.
That makes DDNS a good fit for home networks, which normally receive dynamic public IP addresses from their internet service provider.

For example, if you have FTP software on your computer to turn that device into an FTP server, you'd install the DDNS application on that computer. That computer is the one that users will reach when they request your server, so it's the one that needs to always be updating the DDNS provider with its current IP address.

What the software does is monitors the dynamic IP address for changes. When the address changes (which it eventually will, by definition), the software contacts the DDNS service to update your account with the new IP address.

This means that so long as the DDNS software is always running and can detect a change in the IP address, the DDNS name you have associated with your account will continue to direct visitors to the host server no matter how many times the IP address changes.

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. This is because static addresses don't change.

A DDNS service is really only part of the equation when serving files through the internet from your computer. You may also need to tell your router which computer on the network should be contacted when a user outside of the network tries to access the server. This is done by enabling port forwarding on your router.

A DDNS service is perfect if you host your own website from home, you have files you want to access no matter where you are or if you like to remote into your computer when you're away.
You are able to manage your home network from afar, or any other similar reason.
You will be able to setup and host your own websites from home without static IP addresses.

You need to download the PHPFusion Dynamic Service installer from our Client Portal and follow the installation instructions.

NOTE : For the service to work you must host your domains with us @ PHPFusion.

This is the same user name and password as you have on this site.

NOTE : You must have a valid account here and your domains must be registered via us for this service to work.

You right click on the Atom icon that is present on your desktops hidden / non hidden activity icons.

You need Windows 7 or higher and later versions of .NET Framework for the Dynamic DNS Software to operate.
You also need a valid account here and your domains must be registered via us for this service to work.

Yes you can, but remember it must be your registered email.

1, Register a domain with us - Register Domains or Transfer a domain to us - Transfer Domain.
2, Go to your Client Portals Dynamic DNS and Enable the service for any given domain you have registered with us.
3, Download the PHPFusion Dynamic Service installer from our Client Portal section and follow the on-screen instructions.
We recommended that you install the DDNS as a service when asked. This way the DDNS Client will silently auto-start when you reboot your computer and run in the background.

The Dynamic DNS Software will automatically send us the new IP when it changes on your local computer.

If you are unsure of your home IP, Push your Windows button and write cmd type ipconfig.
If you are behind a router,
Enter the routers configuration and look for WAN IP.
This is usually done from your local web browser with in the address/url field.
