The IP address is used by the Internet devices to communicate with each other, similar to the way a phone number is assigned to a person. It is difficult for users to remember the IP address of the different Web sites they want to visit, so each site can use a friendlier name, like arris.com .   The friendly name is called a Domain Name. A Domain Name Service (DNS) translates the friendly name that people want to use into the IP address that the devices need to use. A Dynamic Domain Name Service (DDNS) allows a device to report its IP address to the DNS system, so if the IP address changes, it can still be addressed by its friendly name. Most home networks do not need to have a DDNS set up. DDNS is only needed for special needs, such as when a user wants to run a Web Server in the home. For more information on available DDNS services, please visit www.DynDNS.org . DDNS DDNS Service Disabled Enabled                              Help This setting is either disabled or enabled.
