Internet Protocol (IP) Requests:

How do I connect?

We can assist you with static address requests for specific devices so you can achieve a fixed connection. For example, if you want to connect to a network printer, then we can assign a permanent address on the network.

 
 
 
Domain Name System (DNS) Requests:
 

Domain Name System (DNS) converts names (e.g.http://www.ucla.edu) to IP addresses (e.g.169.237.250.250) that are used by networked devices to locate other networked devices across the Internet.

How do I connect?

We can assist you with the following requests:

  • Public and Private DNS Zone creation and management
  • Dynamic DNS (DDNS)
  • DNS Records changes and updates
