    Hello,
    I would like to add a DDNS to my PS4, wd my cloud storage device and my security cameras. I was trying to find an online tech company that could do this for me. I'm in my last semester of school and I do not have the time I need to make sure this is done correctly. Can anyone refer me to someone that can help? I also have a VPN that I use when traveling. I was not sure if I set up a Dynamic DNS if I should have this VPN as a whole on my network that runs all of the time. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Here is ddns provider I've used before: https://www.noip.com. They have a free service also. Some routers have this capability built-in as there is a some sort standard protocol it seems. But if your router doesn't have this, they provide a program which you run in the background which constantly monitors for changes to your external ip and update their servers.

    So basically you register for their service and select your own subdomain name. Then you configure your router or configure their program; providing the subdomain and password. Then you download Apache web server, open an incoming port on your Windows Firewall and use your browser to connect to it to see if it is working.

    Thank you ... It seems pretty straight forward
