Dynamic DNS (DynDNS Pro) hostnames are created for each IP address you are tracking, or webhop you are creating. Each instance of Dynamic DNS gives you the ability to create 30 hostnames.

1.  Log in to your Dyn account. Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 9.27.30 AM
2.  If you have already purchased Dynamic DNS, you’re able to add hostnames. Click on Add Host Services from your account control panel to get started.

3.  You will need to think of an easy-to-remember identifier for your new hostname. Input that identifier into the Hostname field.


4.  Select a shared domain name to associate your hostname with. ra_add_hostname_select_domain
5.  Once you have figured out a hostname to use, you will need to tell us where you want this hostname to go. You can have your hostname point to:

  • IPv4 address (a)
  • IPv6 address (b)
  • Webhop to another full URL (c)
Ensures that if you, or someone you’ve entrusted with your hostname appends the hostname with a prefix (eg. www.) that it’ll still resolve.
Offline Hostname
Allows you to hang onto a hostname if you’re not actively using it.
6. Once you’ve got your settings in place, you’re ready to hit Activate. If you have other products in your shopping cart, this button will appear as Add To Cart; your new hostname will be added as a $0.00 item to your cart, as you must go through the checkout to activate the new host.
