Dyn Updater is a utility application that enables users to keep their hostname’s IP addresses updated. This application supports updates of DynDNS free as well as free DNS service hostnames. Dyn Updater provides regular updates to Dynamic DNS hostnames to avoid expiration due to inactivity. This application works by automatically analyzing the computer’s network IP addresses and checking for updates online through the host server. Dyn Updater then downloads the updates and imports it in the network settings. This application also provides an online database in DynDNS.com that enables users to view the changes and updates done in their IP addresses and DNS services. Dyn Updater is portable, lightweight, and works almost automatically as a background application. This application only requires installation and minimal configuration settings from the part of the user. It will proceed with updating after installation and automatically opens during startup.
