Why Offer Customer Support If No One Ever Answers?

Foscam Discontinues their DDNS Service 

foscam blog image

Foscam recently announced that they stopped supporting their Foscam DDNS (Dynamic DNS) service on their cameras.

This has left many customers with cameras that they can no longer connect to using Foscam’s DDNS.
The good news is that Foscam decided to keep No-IP as an integrated DDNS provider in most Foscam Devices. This means that you can still easily remote access your Foscam camera using Dynamic DNS using No-IP’s Free Dynamic DDNS service.

How does it work?

With a DDNS configuration, you create a hostname such as mycamera.ddns.net. This hostname then points to your router’s external IP address. If that IP address changes, either the camera, router, or a piece of software can update the DDNS hostname to point to the new IP address.

Most Foscam devices come preconfigured to support our Dynamic DNS service. Using the integrated DDNS solution in Foscam solutions with No-IP means that your camera will stay updated with the correct IP address, even when it changes. When your IP address changes, your Foscam camera will post dynamic updates to your No-IP hostname when your Internet Service Provider issues you a new IP address.

To enable the DDNS functions in your Foscam device, you will first need to have a No-IP account and hostname created. If you have not created a No-IP account and hostname, please refer to this tutorial.

Upgrade Your No-IP Account
No-IP Free hostnames are required to be confirmed every 30 days. You will receive an email from No-IP with a link to confirm your hostname.

To eliminate the 30-day expiration notice, you may want to upgrade to the No-IP Enhanced Dynamic DNS.
