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.
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! Read about our infrastructure further down the page
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!
