Definition of TZO DDNS and its purpose
TZO is a DDNS Service provider.
DDNS is a feature that allow user to assign a fixed host and domain name to a dynamic Internet IP address. This will allow user to locate the Network Storage System without knowing its dynamic Internet IP address.
For example, assign the Network Storage System the fixed host and domain name of www.mystorage.com. When you travel, you can find the Network Storage System at www.mystorage.com (the DDNS service provider keeps track of the dynamic Internet IP address of the Network Storage System).
