In case you have just decided to start using DDNS services (e.g. our trusted partner NO-IP) to make your dynamic IP address finally stable and unchanged, you need to configure your router. 

Here are 4 steps to take:

1. Log in to your router (read more about How to find your router administration).

2. Enter your router credentials into the login page.

Your router credentials should be on a sticker on the bottom of your router. If not, see the most common credentials below:

Device         Username      Password

D-Link          admin            (leave blank)
Netgear       admin             password
Linksys         admin             admin
Asus             admin             admin
DrayTek        admin             admin
ZyXel            admin             1234
TP-Link         admin             admin
TRENDnet    admin             admin
Belkin           admin             (leave blank)

3. Locate the Dynamic DNS (DDNS) settings. Typically this will be under Advanced and then DDNS or Dynamic DNS.

4. On the DDNS page, select the name of your provider (e.g. NO-IP). Enter your username and password given to you by your DDNS services provider. Then enter in the hostname or domain you have created in the host or domain field.

See an example of what your settings may look like (example for NO-IP DDNS):

DDNS Provider: No-IP
Username: YourEmailAddress
Password: YourPassword


5. For connecting your camera to Angelcam, keep your hostname/domain on hand, you will need it during the connection process.
When connecting multiple cameras to Angelcam, you still use the same hostname/domain, just keep in mind that each camera will have to use a unique port number.

In case your camera is already connected to Angelcam, don't forget to change the hostname in the camera settings (read more how to change the camera settings).
