The "Dynamic Domain Name System", or DynDNS for short, offers you the option of accessing devices in your home network via the Internet. All you have to do is type a domain in your browser and you will be forwarded to your network storage (NAS) via a dynamic IP address, for example. But what are the easy ways to get such access?

Simple solution with FritzBox and Speedport routers

First of all, you have an advantage if you own a Fritz! Box from AVM, because it can be easily converted into DynDNS access with a script and its own web space. You can find out how to do this in the following linked article.

Anyone who has a Telekom Speedport router in operation at home also has to tinker with something. However, you need a good DynDNS provider for this. We list free providers below.

These offer you more hostnames, no advertising and no permanent confirmation is necessary.

Differences between free and paid providers

Often free and paid offers only differ in the following points: hosts, sub-domains and no advertising. For private users who do not need too many hosts, a provider with a free package is definitely sufficient. However, if you want to forego advertising and have more domains to choose from, you can opt for a paid package.
