After December 10, 2015 the merseine.nu and the shacknet.nu domains will no longer be available through Dyn for your Remote Access hostnames. Follow the instructions on this page (or in this video: Remote Access Domain Deprecation) to ensure uninterrupted service.

 

To Update Your DynDNS Pro Domain/Hostname

1. Log in to your Dyn account. Log-onto DynDNS Account
2. Click on My Hosts Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 9.24.43 AM
3. Click Add New Hostname to create the replacement domain/host. Add Hostname
4. Create a new hostname using one of the new domains listed in the drop-down list.

There are versions of merseine and shacknet domain names for you to select, but you can select any domain from the drop-down list you want for the new hostname.

Enter the IP Address for the host.  This should be the IP Address that the old domain is currently using.

The IP Address is located in the Details field in the DynDNS Hostnames table. (xxx.yyy.zzz.abc in the graphic on step 3.)

New Hostname
5. Click Activate to create the new hostname. Activate
6. Delete the old hostname. See Deleting a Hostname for instructions on deleting the old hostname.
7. Update your Remote Access client to use the new hostname. Use the information in the help topic Refresh the Updater Client Host List to ensure your update client is connected to your new hostname.
