Dynamic DNS Integrations

Our approach to dynamic DNS integration is simple: we can accomplish more together than we can apart.

This is why we so strongly support our beloved software and hardware partners that help make our dynamic DNS services even better. If you’re looking to get started on your own integration, here’s how.

Software Integrations with Dynamic DNS Clients

In addition to our own DynDNS Update Client for Windows and Mac OS X, many Dyn partners have contributed dynamic DNS clients to the community at large:

  • ddclient – Highly customizable dynamic DNS client written in Perl that’s included in most *nix distributions (e.g., on Debian, use “apt-get install ddclient” to install). For more information, see our page on using ddclient with DynDNS services or the ddclient project page.
  • RightScale Dyn RightScript – Automatically update Amazon Web Services Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) IP addresses with your Dyn Standard DNS or DynDNS hostnames using the RightScale cloud management platform. See the RightScript in your RightScale Dashboard to get started.

Hardware Integrations with Dynamic DNS Clients

  • D-Link – Nearly all D-Link home gateways and wireless access points contain a dynamic DNS client for use with Dyn Standard DNS or DynDNS. Simply click the DDNS tab in your device’s web administration portal. Some D-Link models (including the DIR-655) even support IPv6 dynamic DNS updates (link to press release once posted).
  • Cisco Linksys, Sonicwall, Belkin, Netgear and more – Nearly all home gateways and wireless access points contain a dynamic DNS client for use with Dyn Standard DNS or Dyn DNS. Simply click the DDNS tab in your device’s web administration portal to get started.

Want To Integrate?

If you have a software project or hardware integration that would benefit from our dynamic DNS services, check out our developer connection for all the information you need to get started. When you have your integration complete, announce it in our community forum and we’ll include a link to your project page on this site.
