D-Link Router Configuration for Dynamic DNS


  • D-Link Dynamic DNS service is terminated as of July 2nd, 2020. Move to No-IP for free or save on a paid upgrade to maintain your remote access setup.

Are you trying to setup No-IP Dynamic DNS (DDNS) on your D-Link Router? This guide will walk you the D-Link Router Configuration for No-IP’s Dynamic DNS service.

First, if you’re not sure if your specific router model supports our service you can check out our list of supported D-Link routers here.  You can also check if you already have the device if your router supports us if you’re able to select No-IP in the Dynamic DNS settings.

  1. Login to your D-Link router, ensure it is up-to-date with the latest firmware.
  2. Navigate to the DDNS settings within the router and confirm that No-IP listed as a provider in the Server Address dropdown.
  3. Enter your No-IP Hostname, Username, Password and set the desired time out.

Lastly, navigate to your D-Link Router’s Port Forwarding page and Port Forward the port for the device you are trying to access. 
The following guide will help you Port Forward your D-Link Router: How to Port Forward a D-Link Router.

Note: Some routers DDNS pages can look differently and function slightly differently. These settings should work for almost any router so if the above isn’t working for you go off of this instead:

DDNS Provider: No-IP
Username: Your full No-IP Account Email Address or Username
Password: Your Password to log into No-IP
Hostname/Domain: The hostname you created for example: hostname.ddns.net
*Server/Server Address: dynupdate.no-ip.com
*Not every devices will ask you for this. You don’t have to add if it doesn’t ask for it.
