The official client for updating DNS entries in the No-IP.com system.
No-IP Free offers an easier way for others to locate you on the Internet. If you want to serve web pages, host Quake, share MP3s, or run any kind of Internet server, you need a name so your users can find you. It's simple.
You choose a name for your computer and we tell the world where your computer is located. Even better, we also provide you with a program that notifies us whenever your computer's IP address changes. Instead of being just a number on the Internet, your server is now always available by the same easy-to-remember name.
Get A Name To Remember
The IP addresses used by computers to communicate are difficult to remember. You wouldn't think of accessing yahoo.com, by typing "18.104.22.168" into your browser, would you? With No-IP free, your computer now has a name, not just a numeric address. You can have a server that's just as accessible as the Internet's biggest sites.
Make Your Location Constant
Even better is that your name remains the same, even when your service provider changes your address behind the scenes. Dial-up accounts, and some DSL or cable modem subscribers, often get a different IP address every time they connect.
Although this allows your ISP to serve a large number of customers with a small block of addresses, it means that your location on the Internet is always changing. By automatically maintaining the relationship between your fixed name and the changing IP, No-IP Free anchors you in cyberspace.
Shorten Your Favorite Web URLs
Ever wish the URL for your personal website did not resemble www.someisp.com/subscribers/j/s/~jsmith?. With No-IP Free, you can transform this clunker into jsmith.hopto.org.
Accept Mail For Your Domain
An added bonus is that you can have email addresses associated with the domains you create. You can use No-IP Free to direct mail for firstname.lastname@example.org to three mail servers of your own choosing. This allows you to run your own mail server and point to others as backup.
Once you have your own spot on the Internet, you can run a commerce website, publish a rant, hold a forum, serve files, anything you want. No-IP has registered servequake.com, servemp3.com and myvnc.com so that you can create your own subdomains for some common Internet server needs.
No-IP Free Is Ideal If You:
· Are running a web site from a dial-up/dsl/cable connection and need a fixed location on the Internet.
· Want to shorten the URL for existing sites.
· Want a descriptive name for your website without the bother of registering a domain name with an Internet name registrar.
· Need to accept mail for one of your No-IP subdomains.
All this is provided by No-IP's dependable name service back end and, as its name implies is FREE. The service is supported by advertising on our website and by paid services, such as No-IP Enhanced, No-IP+, No-IP Squared and No-IP Mail. If you are interested in these services, have a look at their descriptions.
