It is an unofficial online shopping event that many people look forward to and plan for every year.

However, it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the endless list of options when searching Amazon’s vast inventory. But don’t fret! Below are some example devices that you can integrate with No-IP’s update client:
Amazon Prime Day Routers
Routers are like train stations for your local area network (LAN) by managing the information that goes to and from your IP devices and ensuring that information goes to the right places. There are both wired and wireless routers:
Many users opt for these traditional routers as they are more secure for setting up the most stable and efficient internet connection. This is especially important when you don’t want any interruptions while playing video games or uploading large files. Wired routers are also great for new users or those that want to keep their LAN on the smaller side.
This is a great option for those that want a reliable and energy-efficient router. Plus, No-IP has a guide on how to connect DDNS to the Ubiquiti Edge Router in our Knowledge Base library.
The most obvious advantage of wifi routers is the fact that you have the freedom to set it up anywhere. No need to snake long ethernet wires around furniture or drill holes in between walls. Furthermore, wifi routers can handle more connections than wired ones.
Although a higher price point compared to the traditional wired router, this WiFi router is popular for having an easy setup and a robust signal strength. Thankfully, it doesn’t matter if your router is WiFi or ethernet – the steps are all the same when you configure DDNS! We have a guide detailing the steps in the No-IP Knowledge Base.

Amazon Prime Day Network Attached Storage (NAS)
There is nothing more secure than keeping all your important documents, files, and photos in your IP network.
