What Is DNS?
Short for Domain Name System (or Service
or Server), an
Internet service that translates domain names into IP addresses.
Because domain names are alphabetic, they're easier to remember.
The Internet however, is really based on IP addresses.
Every time you use a domain name, therefore, a DNS service
must translate the name into the corresponding IP address.
For example, the domain name www.example.com might translate
What is Dynamic DNS?
Short for Dynamic Domain Name System, a method of keeping
a domain name linked to a changing IP address as not all
computers use static IP addresses. Typically, when a user
connects to the Internet, the user's ISP assigns an unused
IP address from a pool of IP addresses, and this address
is used only for the duration of that specific connection.
This method of dynamically assigning addresses extends
the usable pool of available IP addresses. A dynamic DNS
service provider uses a special program that runs on the
user's computer or router, contacting the DNS service each
time the IP address provided by the ISP changes and subsequently
updating the DNS database to reflect the change in IP address.
In this way, even though a domain name's IP address will
change often, other users do not have to know the changed
IP address in order to connect with the other computer.
