Our core business is Dynamic DNS
ChangeIP.com was started in early 2000 to challenge
one of today's biggest problems. People need a way to
serve content using their dynamic IP address. The pace
of innovation on the internet these days is amazing. Remember
just a few years ago there was no broadband access to the net?
ISPs today are handing out a dynamic IP addresses more and more
- the DNS infrastructure on the internet needs to
be enhanced in order to accommodate dynamic IP assignments.
ChangeIP.com was built from the ground up for users that are
are assigned dynamic IPs - and we built it to be business class
DNS. We will always provide Dynamic DNS as our core
business, it means a lot to us.
Business class DNS
We created ChangeIP.com for the sole purpose
of providing business class DNS to everyone on the internet.
Most Dynamic DNS providers that you'll find on the internet
today are run by hobbyists. Using a package called 'GnuDIP'
and with some knowledge of SQL databases you can setup one yourself
in a few hours. These providers also come and go about
as often as you reinstall your operating system. Our backend
software was written 100% from scratch to handle today's DNS
needs, and grow into the future. If you are looking for
a DNS provider that's built for business and won't disappear overnight,
then choose ChangeIP.com!

Enhanced Dynamic DNS
using 'Dynamic Sets'
Enhanced Dynamic DNS means having the ability
to auto-update DNS host addresses in 'Dynamic Sets'
or 'Dynamic Groups'.
A Dynamic Set is a group of hosts that you've flagged
as being together in the same group. You can have multiple
Dynamic Sets, or groups of hostnames. This gives
you the ability to run auto-update clients from multiple locations
to update only certain groups of hostnames. For instance,
you have 2 computers on a different cable modems at home, one for your
web/ftp server and one for your mail and other services.
Each of the servers have a different IP address that automatically
gets assigned via DHCP. Auto-updates are configured on
both machines. The web/ftp server is auto-updating 'Set
1' and the mail server is auto-updating 'Set 2'. This
flexibility gives you the ability to use more than 1 dynamic
IP address with your account. With all other Dynamic DNS
providers you can't auto-update from multiple locations therefore
making these configurations impossible. Update 'Set 1'
from home and 'Set 2' from the road!
Tier 1 Data Center Reliability
Your DNS is the single most important link of the puzzle
to having an online presence. Recent DNS outages causing
major websites like Microsoft & Yahoo to disappear off the internet
are making the news because of faulty DNS infrastructure.
Your website stops taking requests, emails get returned, you
can't login to your home machine, all of which are a result
of a faulty DNS infrastructure. Our name servers are protected
in secured cabinets under lock and key in today's most advanced
data co-location facilities.
With multi-path, redundant internet connectivity and state of
the art environmental features you'll be sure that your DNS
keeps responding. We supply you with 3-5 different name
servers in different geographical locations for the added assurance
that your domains will be uninterrupted. As we gain more customers
we continue to scale our DNS infrastructure and backend
systems to bring you excellent
response times and availability.
Low Cost Domain Registrations
We're joined the Network Solutions Premier
Partners program to provide you with low cost domain name registrations.
Why pay retail price for a brand name domain when you can
buy it wholesale? Sometimes it's just easier to have online management of both
your domain name registration data and your DNS records in the
same location. This makes managing your domain names a
snap with the online features here at ChangeIP.com. Real
time registry editing is made possible directly via our online
console, and DNS changes take effect within a minute.
Now that's convenience!
We don't believe in 3rd party advertisements
on our site. The internet is littered with flashy, eye
poking, obnoxious banner ads everywhere you surf these days.
Our service speaks for itself - if you like it - recommend it
to a friend. We just don't like ads. Let your experience
while you are here be memorable - no ads! NOTE:
There are pop-unders used only on the free sub domain services
when using the URL cloaking feature. Once you have become
a paying customer you will never see any ads.
What's a reliable DNS infrastructure going to
do for you if you can't get it working? We respond to
support inquiries via email within a few hours, most of the
time within minutes. If you need help in setting up your
dynamic DNS or custom solution please email us at
Someone is always glad to assist with whatever questions you
have. Our staff is very knowledgeable with DNS and related
technologies and can help customize a solution to fit your exact
needs. See the Contact Us page
for more information on ways to get in touch with us.
Raw Zone Files via Email
Sometimes it's just nice to be able to see
exactly whats in your DNS zone files. Using our website
you can request all your custom DNS zone files be sent to you via email.
This makes it easy for you to verify exactly what the DNS zones
we are serving for you look like. This can prove invaluable
for those times when it's 3am and things aren't working as you'd
expect. A good reality check. We've also added
the ability to auto-send your zone files to you when they are
Backups & Disaster Recovery
You'd be amazed at how many Dynamic DNS providers
couldn't recreate your DNS information in a disaster.
You wouldn't want to store the only copy in the DNS server
itself. Any data loss or corruption can cause days of downtime for anything
hosted on your domains. We consistently make multiple
database backups per day and store them offsite for your added protection.
A backup is only good if you can restore it, this is why we
restore our backups frequently to our development system for
verification and testing purposes.
Online Management Tools in Real Time
Everyone likes an easy to use web interface.
Why should setting up your DNS be complicated by a hard to use
web page? When you add a domain name to your account
you can immediately begin to edit the records associated with
it. This makes configuration of the DNS
records more user friendly for those not-so-technical users
out there. You can also add as many hostnames as you wish
to each domain name - why not have more than just a www hostname?
Go ahead - use the trial period to experience the difference.
Dirt Cheap Pricing
The Internet is a great way to provide great
services for people at little or no cost. We're here to
provide you a darn good service at a darn good price!
For your first domain we offer a full year of Dynamic DNS for
only $15. Each additional domain is only $6 per year -
that's the lowest cost versus quality we've found anywhere! Shorter subscriptions
are available, see the pricing page
for more. You bought into the 'Domain Name Game' -
you probably can't even use your own property for anything other than
hosting a single website at your current provider? Let us help you maximize your domain
names with Enhanced Dynamic DNS!
Our service offerings will continuously improve
and evolve as users give us input and feedback. We want
you to let us know how we can do things better for you - send
us your comments to feedback@ChangeIP.com.
