New Article on Hardware Dynamic DNS Clients

From time to time we’re asked about using hardware Dynamic DNS clients built in to some routers. While initially that seems to be a great idea, it can really be troublesome to debug customer problems when they’re using firmware DDNS implementations.

We’ve posted a new article in our Guides and Tips section that fully describes the advantages of the No-IP DUC software. You can click here to read the complete article.

Use No-IP To Keep An Eye On Things At Home While Away

True story: A No-IP employee recently had his house broken into while away for a weekend. If he had a few security cameras hooked up he might have been able to catch the thieves red-handed.

This busy holiday season you have better things to do than worry if your house is still standing while you’re on vacation. Did you know that you can use No-IP to provide access to your security cameras over the web when you’re away from home?

It’s quite simple really. Using a No-IP domain name, some readily available cameras, and a PC-based (or standalone) Digital Video Recorder (DVR), you can access the cameras from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. To find out more on how you can use No-IP, have a look at this article from the Guides and Tips section of our website.
