Zoom X6 ADSL routers include DDNS, or dynamic DNS support. When DDNS is enabled and configured on the Zoom X6, it automatically updates the DDNS host name with its Internet IP address every time it changes. Users can access their router and services on their local network at the router's host name instead of the router's IP address. Since many residential Internet service providers assign IP addresses that change occasionally to their customers, DDNS lets users access their router at one consistent address.
