HOW TO SET UP SAFEDNS ON ROUTERS WITH STATIC AND DYNAMIC IP ADDRESSES

Router with Static IP address configuration

1. Change your router’s DNS servers to our IP addresses - 195.46.39.39 and 195.46.39.40

2. Go to SafeDNS Dashboard > Settings and copy your IP address to the 'Enter an IP-address or DynDNS' box. Then click 'Add'.

You have successfully configured your router.

Router with Dynamic IP address configuration.

In case you have a Dynamic IP address, you need to configure the DynDNS/DDNS on the router using a third-party Dynamic DNS service.

1. In the router setting, go to DynDNS/DDNS settings,

2. Check the DynDNS service available for your router. If available, we recommend using the No-IP DynDNS service provider.

3. Go to noip.com and sign up

 

4. In your No-IP account, create a hostname (any name you want)

5. Go back to your router and configure DDNS/DynDNS 

Select No-IP as 'Service provider';
Type in the created hostname in the 'Hostname' field
Type in your No-IP account credentials as 'Username' and 'Password', and click 'Save'

If everything is correct, DynDNS/DDNS settings will apply 

6. Add the created hostname in Dashboard > Settings and click 'Add'.

Once added, you will see it in the DynDNS section of the Dashboard

You have successfully configured your router.

In rare cases when your router does not have a DynDNS/DDNS setting and your IP is Dynamic, you need to use a third-party software - DDclient on the PC connected to the network.
- Set up DNS servers in your router:


- Install DDclient - https://www.safedns.com/en/guides/dynamic-ip-ddclient/ - on a PC connected to the network.
