A dynamic network is a hostname that points to a public IP address which can change over time. This feature allows the Web Protection service to manage policies for dynamic IPs. (A DNS lookup is performed every 5 to 10 minutes, which uses the Hostname to retrieve the most current IP for your network. Note that a Dynamic Network name, hostname, or active policy may be changed in the Networks section.)
In order for this feature to function correctly, a dynamic DNS service must be activated. This service will track your network's IP address and adjust the host name accordingly. Here is a list of some providers that offer a dynamic DNS service. Some are free, others may charge a minimal fee. Each service has documented ways of keeping your host name in sync with your dynamic IP.
