why do I need a dynamic DNS service

DDNS is a handy way for you to refer to a server/router with an easily rememberable name, where the servers ip address is likely to change

when your router reconnects, or ec2 server reboots, its ip address is set by the provider of that connection, this means it may update at any time


why make a free DDNS service?

because we can, because before we started we couldn't, learning is fun
