Free Dynamic DNS Update Client
Dynamic DNS is what No-IP does best.
Download our Dynamic Update Client (DUC) to keep track of your changing IP address.
Our Dynamic Update Client is the easiest to use and most downloaded update client on the Internet.
See for yourself at Download.com.
The No-IP Dynamic DNS service is supported in many
hardware routers and Internet enabled devices such as SMC, D-Link, Sonicwall and
Symantec. This can be useful when you need Dynamic DNS for a device that does
not run Windows, Mac or Linux/Unix.
Port 80 Redirection
A great number of cable and DSL providers block
HTTP port 80. This is specially done to stop the spread of worms and viruses.
If port 80 is blocked, running a website is next to impossible. With the Port 80
redirection feature you can still run a web server even if port 80 is
TXT record and SPF support
Many email providers are actively
checking Domain Keys and SPF records. This type of checking is becoming ever so
useful in detection of spam. In a DNS TXT record you can define a SPF record or
Domain Key to describe which mail servers are allowed to send email for your
domain name. Providers such as Hotmail will begin actively blocking messages
that come from a domain without SPF records in the very near future. So if
email delivery is important to you then DNS with TXT record support is key
For whatever reason your site is not available you
can set it to offline mode. This will present your web visitors with either a
special page saying your site is currently down or optionally redirect DNS
traffic to a different IP address when in offline mode. You can additionally use
this with No-IP's Advanced Monitoring service to automatically activate your
offline settings upon the monitoring service detecting an outage.
If you are looking for reverse DNS, No-IP can also set this
up for you for just $10.00 more per year per zone file. Contact support to add this
to your account.

Geographically diverse DNS network
The location of DNS servers is
important in providing 100% uptime. We deploy nameservers across the globe at
geographically unique datacenters using different tier 1 bandwidth providers to
ensure a natural disaster or connectivity outage does not disrupt our robust DNS
Wildcards, A,CNAME,NS, and other custom records
Users have unique
needs so we like to accommodate. Through our web interface create records such
as A, CNAME, NS, TXT, and wildcards.
Support for up to 5 MX records
MX records are responsible for making
email delivery possible. Most DNS providers allow the use of one MX record.
This is great if email is not important. With one MX record and a mail server
outage, chances are emails to your domain will bounce. With multiple MX records
you can specify up to 5 alternate mail servers that can receive email for your
domain. Take a look at our Backup MX service if you are in need of another
backup mail spool

Update client sub-accounts
Run the update client on multiple
locations and assign each client a unique username and passwords which only have
access to certain subdomains or hosts in your account.
Host grouping to ease bulk ip updates
Host groups ease the updating
of A records for users with multiple domains or a domain with many subdomains.
Assign hosts a group and then make one update to the group and all hosts within
that group get updated. The official No-IP dynamic update clients support group
