Releases Dynamic Update Protocol v2.1


Today No-IP announces the public release of the No-IP Dynamic Update Protocol v2.1. Now router manufacturers and software vendors can integrate No-IP’s rock solid dynamic DNS service into their products adding substantial value to their product and leveraging No- IP’s growing user base of over 2 million worldwide.

With Dynamic DNS the trouble of accessing a computer or network attached to the Internet via a dynamically assigned IP address becomes a thing of the past. Dynamic DNS solves this problem by updating DNS records in seconds after an IP address change is detected and insures that an easy to remember static domain name is always in sync with the end users current IP address. Users then have endless opportunities to take full advantage of their Internet connection including running a website, hosting a game server, aiding remote administration, managing security cameras and endless other client-server applications.

Adding No-IP support to your product is simple. With No-IP’s easy to understand HTTP based update protocol, router manufactures and software vendors can add support to their product in no time. Additionally, incorporate our affiliate program and earn residual income by referring customers to No-IP.

“The new protocol specifications bring together all the features that have been available to the No-IP supported update clients.” Said Dan Durrer, Chief Technology Officer, “The new documentation makes the system easy to understand and quick to implement.”

A compatibility update protocol is also available which implements a protocol commonly used by other providers. This is convenient for vendors who already support other dynamic DNS providers. Adding support under the compatibility protocol may be as simple as making your software aware of the No-IP update server.
