Dynamic DNS is a method of automatically updating a name server in the Domain Name System (DNS) with the active DDNS configuration of its configured hostnames, addresses or other information, often in real time. It is used to assign a computer a fixed domain name without changing your DHCP configuration. Since it does not assign a static IP address and also retain the DHCP configuration, the network is still protected by potential hackers and attackers. Dynamic DNS is a system that addresses the problem of rapid updates.
To access your network remotely, D-Link Tech Support suggests you to use this feature. It will also allow you to access the devices in the network. In this way you can also access devices like camera in your network using DDNS for remote monitoring. It is also a great choice if you want to host your website or setup a server without disabling DHCP.
