Keystroke Dynamic DNS - the simple and economical way to enhance your Internet connection
What is DNS? The Domain Name System or Service (DNS) is a process that maps hostnames (how humans address servers) to IP addresses (how computers address servers).When you visited http://www.keystroke.ca/, your computer resolves that hostname as 126.96.36.199. This translation happens every time you access a website, FTP server, or your e-mail.
DNS is a required "glue" for any Internet application or service where you use a hostname or domain name. Keystroke.ca provides domain registration and DNS service in addition to mail services and network monitoring.

So What is Dynamic DNS?
So why is Dynamic DNS useful to me?
The Dynamic DNS service is ideal for a home website or file server, or just to keep a pointer back to your home PC so you can access those important documents while you're at work. Your hostname is always pointing to your IP address, no matter how often your ISP changes it. No more fumbling to find that piece of paper where you wrote down your IP address, or e-mailing all your friends every time it changes. Just tell them to visit yourname.kqdns.com instead!
Why is Dynamic DNS Required?
In this way, even though a domain name's IP address will change often (sometimes every hour), other users do not have to know the Changed IP address in order to connect with the other computer.
The Dynamic DNS service allows you to create your own unique address on the information super highway, allowing your computer to be more easily accessed from various locations on the Internet.
