Dynamic DNS for Android

Pre-configuration requirements

Navigate to the zone you wish to connect with Dynamic URL. Find or create an A or AAAA record, that is going to be dynamically updated, and click on the arrows icon (Active Dynamic URL). Then, click on Activate it button and a new window will appear, with example scripts, used for record update. Depending on the record type, A or AAAA, copy the first example, which looks like this:

https://ipv4.cloudns.net/api/dynamicURL/?q=your-string
https://ipv6.cloudns.net/api/dynamicURL/?q=your-string

Note: These are sample URL's. You should use the URL's from your own records.
