DDNS functionality is built right into our Managed DNS services. Our DDNS API gives users the most flexible architecture to update their IP's at anytime. In fact you can even update your failover or round robin IPs!
Dynamic DNS Clients
To make DNS Made Easy even easier we are making an IP update available by passing the parameters to a HTTP or HTTPS request.
To turn on Dynamic DNS for your account / record you need to:
To receive the unique id for your record:
There are currently many free / paid clients on the Internet that detect your IP and allow you to pass the necessary arguments in the URL. If you would like to develop a client and notify us we will list your product and URL on this page. Please open a support ticket to receive a full listing of the possible error codes returned.
Please contact the author's of the clients if you have any problems with their respective clients. The clients that have been developed for DNS Made Easy users are the following:
UNIX / Linux
If you are interested in making your hardware or software compatible with DNS Made Easy please see our technical specification page.
A good client will only send the IP update request when the IP changes. This limits your web traffic.
The necessary arguments you need to pass in the URL are:
NOTE: In your "Advanced DNS Settings" you can turn on an option to set a password per record so you do not have to use your main DNS Made Easy password / username. You can enter the record name for the "username" if you are using the special per-record password.
Because DNS Made Easy uses the "record ID" you are able to update any A record that you have in the system. In fact you can update a backup IP in your DNS failover configuration or even one of your A records in your "round-robin" configuration. You can even update more than one ID at a time when you separate them by commas (,).
DNS Failover Note: Please look at the DDNS settings at the bottom of the DNS Failover configuration screen for more information on how to configure DDNS updates for your failover IPs.
