How to use your Selfhost address with your INSTAR IP camera?
To create a No-IP hostname, you first have to log in and create a user account - click on selfHost free to start.
Confirm that you want to get the free account.
Type in a personal host name you want to use for your camera - we choose simply instar.
Even though you are going to use a free account, Selfhost still wants to collect some billing information from you in case you change your mind later and pick up a premium account.
After confirming your information, Selfhost will check if the hostname you choose is available and then lets you finish process via an email confirmation.
Go to Details to check your account information that you will need to update your DDNS hostname.
Write down your DYN Account username, password and hostname - you will need those in the next step.
