DDNS Setup


DDNS stands for Dynamic Domain Name System. The main advantage for DDNS is If you have a dynamic ip address, (where your address can change monthly by your ISP if not static) the DDNS service will track and update with your new IP address automatically. So no matter what your numeric IP address is, your DDNS address will work even if your numeric IP address changes.


  • The device must be connected to the Internet, please check if the connection works properly.
  • Please confirm Internet access port is open and default port to open is: 80, 554,37777. To modify default port, please refer to DDNS User’s Manual.
  • The default username and password are admin/admin. You should change your password at first login.
  • DDNS management website:
  • The device supports monitoring and DDNS management via mobile phone. You need to download the App first.
  • Please keep the tag of device MAC address. Do not lose or destroy it.
  • DahuaDDNS service is disabled by default, and to enable it, you need to login first.
