Dynamic Hostname Services
Using DtDNS, you can get a hostname (ex: you.ourdomain.com) on one of our domains that will
"follow" your Internet connection, even on a dynamic IP address. This means that you can now
make a name for yourself on the Internet, without the usual high costs of a static IP address
or full domain name. You are now able to operate your web, ftp, telnet, or other Internet
server on your dialup, cable or DSL connection.
Even if you change Internet providers, take your computer to a friend's house, or decide to
get a static IP address, your DtDNS hostname will follow you wherever you go.
Up to five hostnames FREE, unlimited hostnames for a one-time $5.00 fee.

- Speed - IP address changes are generally out on the Internet
within a few minutes of the change request on our server. You can use an automated update
client to get IP address changes to our system within a few seconds after your IP address
- Reliability - We have DNS servers placed on separated
networks in multiple geographic locations. If one of our DNS servers goes down, the others
will automatically assume the load.
- Wildcards - DtDNS hostnames allow you to have a wildcard for
your host, so anything.yourhost.dtdns.net will point to your computer if this feature is
- Offline Handler - There are bound to be times when you
are not going to have your computer online. DtDNS will display an offline notice to your web
visitors when you set your host as being offline, or we can point your hostname to any
pre-determined IP address you specify, or even send your web visitors to a designated web
- Update Groups - Assign your hostname to an Update Group for
easier IP updates if you manage multiple hostnames or domains.
- Custom MX Records - Enhanced hostnames allow you to have
multiple custom MX records for your hostname. Define up to 4 MX records for your hostname and
point them any server you would prefer your e-mail to be delivered to. This feature is fully
compatible with web-based e-mail service from providers like Everyone.net.
- Heartbeat Monitor - If you have an unreliable Internet
connection, DtDNS can automatically set your hostname as being "offline" if an IP update is not
sent to our server within a specified time limit. This will cause your web visitors to see
your offline notice instead of not being able to connect at all.
- Cloaked URL Redirection - Hostnames also have the ability to
cloak the offline URL redirection using a frameset. You can also define the title
and meta tags for the main frame.
