Use NOIP to setup a Remote DDNS

Use NOIP to setup a Remote DDNS

No-IP/DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name System) is a service that associates a domain name with a changing IP address. ISPs often assign dynamic IP addresses, which can be problematic for hosting services such as CurrentWare for a remote setup.

No-IP/DDNS solves this by mapping the domain name to the changing IP address using client software or network device configurations. It ensures consistent access to services by automatically updating the DNS record with the latest IP address information.
