no-ip.com Using Groups

This method dose not work automaticly, It seams to only work manually, I have left these notes here for if it is one day fixed. I now have 1 entry per host without using groups.

With NoIP you can optionally group hosts together and update them as one.

  • On the no-ip website, go to "hosts / Redirects" > "Manage Groups"
  • You can set a password.
  • and add any hosts/domains you want to the group.

For this example we will assume you are.
* Group = "myGroup"

  • Hostname: "noipg-myGroup"; The prefix "noipg-" and the group name.
  • Username: The user name /email address for your account.
  • Password: Your noip.com password, See Note below on group passwords.

Note, Check your "ipfire admin page" > "Logs" > "System Log" > "Section, Dynamic DNS", Check it again 15 Min later to see if it still works.

NoIP supports a group password, so you don’t have to use your main password remotely.
User name becomes "myGroup:myAddr@domain.com", if you want to try it.
