Servers and Services > Dynamic DNS
If you want to make your hosts accessible from the Internet (don’t forget security!), but do not have a domain name pointing to your PC, you will need a Dynamic DNS service.
If your network is connected to the Internet through a router and it can handle Dynamic DNS services, then you don’t need to configure it with MAMP PRO.
Otherwise, you will need to register with a Dynamic DNS service and enter the username and password in the appropriate fields. Then you need to tell MAMP PRO when to inform the Dynamic DNS provider about a change in your Mac’s IP address. This may be necessary when you reboot your computer or when a DSL/cable modem reconnects.
Note: To use the Dynamic DNS features, you must register with one of the supported providers. This is independent of MAMP PRO and is not a service provided by MAMP GmbH.
