Dynamic DNS is an app that works with ClearCenter's Service Delivery Network (SDN) to continually update a system's IP address to a static hostname (for example, myname.poweredbyclear.com). Many ISPs use dynamic IP addresses as a way of managing their network infrastructure and customer accounts, but this practice prevents the practical implementation of running services locally like mail (SMTP) or web (HTTP).
In short, dynamic DNS provides an easily remembered and constantly updated hostname to access your system remotely.
The service is free using a domain provided by ClearCenter. The use of your own domain is possible if your domain is subscribed to and using ClearCenter's domain and DNS services.
