How do I use a browser to dynamically update the host's IP?

The Dynamic DNS feature is available only for the domains pointed to our BasicDNS, PremiumDNS or FreeDNS.

Please substitute these with appropriate values for host, domain, password and IP:[host]&domain=[domain_name]&password=[ddns_password]&ip=[your_ip]

Fields that are to be changed in the URL are: [host], [domain_name], [ddns_password] and [your_ip].

Here is an example for IP address update for a bare domain (e.g., yourdomain.tld):

Host = @
Domain Name
= yourdomain.tld
Dynamic DNS Password
= Domain List >> click Manage next to the domain >>Advanced DNS tab >> Dynamic DNS. If it is not enabled, enable it to check the password.
IP Address
= optional value. If you don't specify any IP, the IP from which you are accessing this URL will be set for the domain.

NOTE: The values for the host name and domain must be lowercase. Please make sure you are using your Dynamic DNS password and not the Namecheap account's one.

In this case, the URL will have the following format:

To dynamically update the IP address for a subdomain (test.yourdomain.tld), use test for Host (host=test). To dynamically update it for www.yourdomain.tld, use www for Host: host=www.

TIP: If you don't want to use any DNS client, you can just bookmark the URL (after inputting proper values there) and access it whenever you need to update your IP.

That's it!
