Dynamic DNS is Still Relevant for Remote Access

I recently read an article by OS News asking whether the desktop computer is becoming a legacy. Personally, I can relate to what’s going on since we get the question of whether dynamic DNS is still relevant. So my question is, do people still use remote access or host content at home?

Since 1998, users have been sharing more content with sites and web applications that we help drive, using a similar technology, such as Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, etc.

At the same time that mobile and cloud has grown, broadband adoption has continued. Tools for hosting content have gotten easier. Something new is that there are more devices that people want to access. Cameras, NAS, shared files, your personal website and more computers at home means that remote availability is more important, especially in a time where people are on the go and need the flexibility to access information wherever they are.

If you are on of those people who want the ability to access your files on the fly and need remote access or want to host your website on your home computer, think beyond your standard hoston service and take a look at our free service, DynDNS Free or use your own domain name with DynDNS Custom.

Overall, dynamic DNS is still alive, well, and growing. Online services for sharing content and media has become more popular but people want the flexibility to running sites and doing remote access. Dynamic DNS is still a relevant technology, people just need to learn all of its capabilities and applications for their life.
