DirectUpdate is the first and only dynamic dns client updater running as a NT service with remote administration. You want to host your own web or ftp server, but do not have a fixed IP address ? Dynamic dns is for you ! Create an account and run DirectUpdate on your machine, you will have your always up to date own domain pointing to your machine!
Whenever you connect to the Internet, your IP address automatically changes. This should not be a problem for most users but for some, the fact that the IP changes all the time can become a problem. Lets take a web server for example. The server automatically detects the IP address of your Internet Service Provider and in case this address changes, the server and your website will become inaccessible. A similar situation is when you are running a FTP server on your home computer and you need to access some files from work. If the IP address of your home computer changes, you would not be able to access those files.
To solve all these problems, you could just install DirectUpdate. This Windows program can periodically detect your IP address and can assign it to a hostname. Thus, when you want to access your computer, you will just need to enter the hostname instead of your IP address. You would not even need to know what your IP address is in this case.
After the program has been installed, you will first need to run the engine component of the application. This component automatically detects your IP address periodically. In order to manage the application and change its settings, you will need to launch the administration module, which comes with DirectUpdate.
At this point, you are able to configure various DNS services and link them with your computers IP address. DirectUpdate supports the majority of DNS services available on the market and most of them are free to register. You can configure an unlimited number of DNS services to run at the same time. Besides that, in case you have a wired and wireless connection at the same time, the program can automatically detect the corresponding IP address for each Internet connection.
