It supports IPv4 and IPv6 updates as well as location. It runs on all computers that have Chrome browsers installed. It can run in the background even if you have all browser windows closed.

Username  Your Dynu account username. Providing username and no location will update the IP address for all hostnames that have no location assigned to them in your account.

Location  Use 'location' parameter if you want to update IP address for one or a collection of hostnames including those created using aliases in different locations. Please note that the 'username' and 'password' parameters are mandatory when using location. You may set up location for your hostnames in the control panel. Make sure that you leave the 'Location' field empty if you did not assign your hostnames to a location in the control panel.
