The sixth iteration of IP, or the internet protocol, is IPv6. In order for a device to send and receive data from a host to a destination, it must abide by a set of rules known as IPs. We require identifying hosts, their geographic coordinates, IP addresses, and a communication path.
Back to IPv6, which has been around since 1995 forever! The odd thing is that there has been a shortage of available IPv4 addresses, along with other issues. Even still, the majority of companies continue to utilize IPv4. Furthermore, it is now a recognized Internet Standard (IETF) that Internet Protocol version 6 usage will soon begin to increase.
Many of you came to this article because you want to make available a particular service from your home or office on the Internet. Dynamic DNS will serve you this purpose! It is easy to implement, and it will save you money, and it could even be free if you don’t require a lot of resources. Do you want to learn more?
What is Dynamic DNS?
Dynamic DNS (DDNS) is a DNS service that allows you to create a hostname for a device and link it to its IP address. It is a simple A or AAAA record so far. The Dynamic part comes from the fact that you can set up your router to report changes in this device’s IP address and send an update message to the DNS server where the link was made. There the hostname’s IP address will be updated. It is a way to automatically update the IP address of a device and provide availability with the need of human effort. You can set up the Dynamic DNS and be sure that the service you are running will be available.
